We provide therapy services for children of all ages, including newborns, who are receiving inpatient care in the hospital. We provide a patient-centered approach to your child’s care, promoting independence, maximizing function and initiating the rehab continuum of care.
We help facilitate the transition back to home and referrals to other Johns Hopkins All Children’s rehabilitation services in our Outpatient Care locations, helping patients receive the care they need closer to home.
We also have a strong focus on parent and family education, providing tools, resources and guidance so that you can support your child’s progress after he or she returns home.
