Center for Brain Injury Recovery
A Continuum of Care for the Child's Developing Brain
When a child experiences a brain injury, the Center for Brain Injury Recovery at Kennedy Krieger Institute, one of the nation’s leading centers focused on pediatric brain injury rehabilitation, provides unparalleled treatment, resources, and support. From 24-hour inpatient programs to outpatient specialty programs, the Center for Brain Injury Recovery helps children and young adults up to age 21 recover from their injuries and make the transition back to home, school, and community life. Whether a child’s symptoms are severe or mild, specialists from multiple disciplines work together to evaluate, diagnose, and create an individualized treatment plan customized to the patient's unique needs.
Established in 1979, Kennedy Krieger’s inpatient unit was the first program of its kind in Maryland to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and continues to receive CARF accreditation today. To receive this prestigious distinction, an organization must pass an in-depth review and meet rigorous guidelines for service and quality. CARF is a qualified endorsement that our program conforms to internationally recognized service standards, and is committed to excellence and the highest satisfaction for each patient and family served.
Since then, our specialists have treated thousands of children and adolescents with rehabilitation needs due to neurological injury or illness. The Center for Brain Injury Recovery is also accredited by The Joint Commission.
