In 2013, the Day Rehabilitation Program treated 149 patients.
What does this data mean?
The graph shows that we treat children and young adults—up to age 21. The largest age group admitted was teenagers 13 to 16 years old.
Why is it important to know the age range?
While at Day Rehab, patients are grouped with people their own age, to support each other during their time in the program. This is important for building self-confidence in children, teens and young adults.
How does Children’s make sure we are giving high-quality care?
Patients, from age 4 to 21, are treated in groups with others around the same age.
- We offer a structured, school-like setting with therapy from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday.
- Five days a week patients can come to rebuild the skills they need at home, school and in the community.
- Our certified teachers work with patients and families to guide them through the process of returning to school. They also work with the patient’s school to provide education about the patient’s current condition and potential needs.
- Age and developmentally appropriate activities and recreational outings help patients relearn and practice everyday things, like using public transportation and buying groceries.
