child having rehabilitation treatment

Treatment begins with a complete evaluation of the child’s functional abilities and deficits. Based on the evaluation, an individualized treatment plan is developed that will include multiple services, depending on each child’s needs. All of this care is family-focused, featuring education, as well as emotional and social support services to help keep the family functioning well.

The intensive therapy services will most often include physical, speech and occupational therapy, as well as therapeutic recreation. Patients will also benefit from the support of our child psychologist as needed.

Pediatric rehabilitation patients will have therapy five to six days a week for several hours a day. Play is also a critical aspect of treatment—children are encouraged to play together and participate in scheduled activities like pet therapy, ping pong, arts and crafts, and board games to promote socialization, which boosts recovery.

Upon completion of inpatient rehabilitation, patients will be referred for follow-up care, which may include outpatient therapy, home care services, or school-based resources.
