Detailed Patient Care Overview

We believe that early identification, intervention, and treatment of disabilities are key to maximizing potential and preventing major problems throughout a child's life. Unlike many other institutions, we've brought all the areas--science, medicine, therapy, and education--to bear on the problems and injuries that affect a child's development. Ours is an interdisciplinary approach that brings together professionals from various fields to create treatment plans tailored to the special needs of each child. In addition, we offer a full continuum of care including inpatient, outpatient, day treatment, and community- and home-based services. Our experience has given us an unparalleled understanding of developmental disabilities that allows us to care for our patients throughout their lives, which ensures success at home and in their community.
