As all of us know, the need of pediatric populations is very much different from the needs of adults. Pediatric populations with developmental delay or disabilities require a unique mode of treatments which is popularly known as habilitation. Habilitation treatments / therapies are purely based on habilitation science. Habilitation science is a very much new when it is compared with rehabilitation science.
Habilitation Services are specialized form of physical therapy for pediatric populations. Habilitation therapies are such types of health care services that help a child to learn new skills, or improve learned skills and functioning for daily living. These services are available in limited pediatric set up. Generally these services are exclusively provided by qualified and exclusively trained habilitation professionals. All children with developmental delay / developmental disabilities require habilitation services for ultimate habilitation. In fact, very few children with developmental disabilities get benefited with traditional rehabilitation therapies.
