At Cook Children's Rehabilitation Services in Fort Worth, we understand that no two children are alike. That's why we offer four types of therapy plans, tailored specifically for your child and his/her needs. We want to make every appointment unique for each family.
Rehabilitation services begin with a referral from your child's physician. An evaluation will be completed by a licensed clinician who will develop a specific therapy plan for your child. Family input is an important part of the therapy plan. The clinician includes your family when planning and identifying specific functional abilities or goals for your child. The therapy plan will include how often therapy will occur and how long it is expected to last. It will also show how your child will make progress toward individual goals and outcomes.

Timely care: We offer virtual video visits for certain appointments and can answer your questions by phone.
Coordinated specialty services: If your child has a more complex medical need requiring additional specialists, we can refer you to nationally recognized teams in the Cook Children's network. We partner with more than 60 other specialty clinics to ensure every child gets the care they need.
Easy access: Our MyCookChildren's patient portal makes it easy to stay in touch. Message your doctors with a question. Schedule an appointment or see test results. You can even send a picture or video for immediate concerns.
Rehabilitation services begin with a referral from your physician. We'll confirm that we've received a referral from your physician before we schedule your appointment. Please contact your insurance company with questions about your benefits. It's your responsibility to understand your insurance plan and benefits. Your insurance company staff can answer coverage questions. Ask insurance company staff about benefits for an outpatient hospital facility.
When you come to your appointment, you'll need to bring:
- Driver's license
- Patient's insurance card
Your first visit
At the first visit, a licensed clinician will test your child as part of the initial evaluation.
Then, using the test results from the first visit, they'll develop a treatment plan. Families help set goals for home programs. The clinician will advise what treatment your child needs.
After the test is finished, your clinician will review the results with you and write a report. Results, goals and a treatment plan will be in the report. Our team will send the report to the referring physician and the insurance company. We'll ask for approval for the treatment plan. After your insurance has approved the treatment plan, we'll call you to make the next appointment.
What happens during appointments?
- Treatment activities are based on your child's treatment plan. We want you to participate in these activities.
- We'll track your child's progress in the medical chart.
- We'll teach you how to do the activities with your child at home.
