Based on the child's needs, the rehabilitation program focuses on mobility, activities of daily living, communication, memory and social interaction. When necessary, adaptive equipment is used to help each child achieve as much function as possible. The interdisciplinary team is experienced in the complexities of pediatric disability and rehabilitation.

The inpatient program admits children with neurological (traumatic and non-traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and cerebral vascular accident), congenital and orthopedic conditions. Children with extensive burns and other disabling conditions are also candidates for admission to the unit.
