Neurorehabilitation Program

The Rainbow Children’s Hospital has a neurorehabilitation program for children that supports the recovery. It also helps the child adapt to the changes after treating an injury or a disease that affected their spinal cord or brain. We design a personalized treatment plan using a multidisciplinary approach. The aim of this child care program is to help the children and their families get the highest level of recovery in a creative, family-centered, and compassionate environment. We have children’s specialist that will be working with your child’s care team to coordinate their treatment. This includes hospital physicians, primary care providers, and other specialists. There will be a therapy program for your child in which we will communicate with the physicians and identify any special equipment needed for the neurorehabilitation program. We will be assisting you and your child while making the transition to the outpatient therapy program. At the Rainbow Children’s Hospital, we combine our expertise in neurorehabilitation and the family’s knowledge for supporting your child at home, school and in other community-based activities.

their families. Assessing and treating emotional, behavioral, and cognitive concerns regarding neuropsychology and rehabilitation psychology.
