Head injury among children is one of the most serious healthcare issues facing parents, clinicians, and schools in the US today. Centre for Neuro Skills is known for its excellence in caring for children and adolescents, and our Pediatric and Adolescent Brain Injury Program is designed exclusively for patients up to 18 years of age.
A key aspect of pediatric rehabilitation is helping patients regain and maintain their study skills, focusing on developmental skills, regaining independence, and reintegration into the educational setting. Brain injury not only interrupts a student’s life, it can impair future
learning capability, if appropriate treatment is not sought.
CNS therapists, nurses, and case managers establish treatment goals with the patient and their family, and together, become collaborators in the patient’s return to school. A comprehensive treatment approach puts the patient and family at the center of the interdisciplinary rehabilitation professionals providing residential, day treatment, and outpatient rehabilitative services, depending on location. For each child or adolescent, a program is structured with rehabilitation services, educational development, and recreational activity. Evaluation of functional outcome goals are established and modified throughout the patient’s rehabilitation.
