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. 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.
Our approach allows patients to be seen through all phases of treatment, including 24-hour inpatient programs, day treatment, home- and community-based services, and outpatient programs. Our programs and services are provided in the following settings of care: inpatient programs, outpatient programs, continuums, and community programs. For more information about the many patient care programs and services offered at Kennedy Krieger Institute, please view our informational factsheet.
