Paediatric rehabilitation is the method by which Paediatric Rehabilitation Physicians restore health and mobility to infants, children and young people following illness, injury or medical procedures. This can be a long term process after the immediate medical needs have been addressed.
Paediatric rehabilitation includes a wide range of conditions in the areas of musculoskeletal/orthopaedic, neurological/developmental, cardiorespiratory and psychological health. Experts in this field also provide treatment, management and education to enhance the participation of minors at school, and within their home and community. They assist children to reach their full potential in mobility, self care and communication.
Experts must apply their professional expertise to observe, monitor and report situations where the well being of their patients is at risk in order to provide advocacy and protection for the child. Within Australia, paediatric rehabilitation experts need to appraise themselves of and comply with federal and state legislation regarding the reporting of suspected child harm within the jurisdiction that they practice.

The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:

- The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
- Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
- Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
