The Pediatric Evaluation and Treatment Team  originated in 2000 as an inpatient rehabilitative support team for the expanding Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Womack Army Medical Center. The team was staffed with a Pediatric Audiologist, Physical and Occupational Therapist, Pediatric Dietitian and Early Intervention Program Manager. The early intervention part of the team (Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Early Intervention Specialist) provide inpatient and outpatient evaluation and treatment services to military dependents birth – 36 months of age. Nutrition and Audiology services are available for pediatric patients of all ages. The team works collaboratively with EDIS and civilian early intervention programs to insure that children with special needs arriving at or leaving Ft.
