Outpatient Programs

To reach HSC regarding any of the below outpatient programs, please call 202-635-5580.

Assistive Technology

Our health care team uses technology to help your child communicate, learn, play, and interact with the people around them. We work with your child to identify the best mobility and technologies to improve independence in the home, school and community.

Equipment Clinic

We evaluate your child’s needs and bring together a team of health care professionals to identify and provide your child with needed medical equipment, like wheelchairs and orthotics (artificial supports and braces).

Feeding and Nutrition

Our goal is to make sure your child gets the right type and amount of food for good growth and development. We will provide you with a feeding care plan specially designed for your child.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps your child improve independence with daily activities like feeding, dressing, and playing. We use fun and creative ways to increase your child’s strength and coordination, needed to complete tasks at home, school or play.

Orthotics and Prosthetics

We provide comprehensive evaluation and management of orthotics and prosthetics for your child. We evaluate your child, create a cast and properly fit orthotics, prosthetics and other artificial supports to improve your child’s balance, gait and alignment.

Palliative Care

Palliative care is care we provide to the child who is experiencing a life-limiting illness. We provide a supportive environment that focuses on better quality of life, family support and management of distressing symptoms, all while respecting your beliefs, values and priorities.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy helps children move around and be as independent as possible. We’ll work on skills like rolling, crawling, sitting, standing and walking.

Speech and Language

Our speech-language team includes qualified professionals who use fun and creative ways to teach children to understand and communicate with the world around them.

Water Therapy

Aquatic therapy, also called pool therapy, is done in our heated pool with specially trained therapists. The water provides support to help your child gain strength and coordination in a calming and relaxing place.
