At Novomed we work in an outpatient setting for assessing children and provide rehabilitation depending on the findings of the individualized assessments. This is an outpatient pediatric diagnostic and treatment department that offers a comprehensive service for all children and their needs. The assessments are carried out by our clinical psychologists and the rehabilitation interventions follow the exact plan and recommendations provided by the individualized assessments. The rehabilitation department includes Speech therapy, Occupational therapy, ABA therapy (Applied Behavioural Analysis), Physiotherapy, and Special Educators.  Additionally, we offer psychotherapy and psychiatric interventions for children. Our team works closely together on each case in order to ensure a multi-disciplinary approach adapted to the needs of each child.
