Pediatric Programs

At NeuroRestorative, we know that children with brain, spinal cord and medically complex injuries, illnesses and other challenges have a unique set of needs and can’t be treated as small adults. They often experience challenges that can extend beyond the physical, cognitive, emotional and behavioral issues related to their injury or illness—significantly impacting their learning and development. Our staff specializes in the treatment of pediatric and adolescent brain injury and other challenges, and we are experts in developing sub-acute and post-acute rehabilitation programs designed to meet the individualized needs of each child we support.

In both our residential and onsite school environments, NeuroRestorative’ s pediatric and adolescent rehabilitation programs offer strategies, rehabilitative supports and clinical therapies to help children as they develop and strive to become more independent. Our programs are delivered in a supportive, compassionate environment where children and teens can continue to learn and grow, develop friendships with their peers and just enjoy being a kid while receiving specialized rehabilitative services to meet their needs. We also ensure that we continually adjust their treatment plan and develop new strategies and supports as they reach the different milestones in their development.

As one of the largest providers of services for children with brain, spinal cord and medically complex injuries and other challenges nationally, NeuroRestorative provides services at our five renowned pediatric program locations:

NeuroRestorative4kids

NeuroRestorative4kids is a long-term residential pediatric care program designed to provide children with a wide range of needs, from brain injury rehabilitation to ventilator nursing care, treatment of major orthopedic injury, complex wound care, complex cardiac and pulmonary care within a safe, non-institutional environment while they receive specialized, skilled care during their recovery period. We’ve created an atmosphere that supports our young patients’ recovery, including distinctly decorated rooms and rehabilitation equipment specifically designed for them. We work one-on-one with children according to their individual needs, from rehabilitation for brain or spinal cord injury to pediatric ventilator nursing care.

Our pediatric occupational therapy team utilizes equipment that is both familiar and fun. “Wii-hab,” a fun physical and occupational therapy using a Nintendo Wii™ home video game, offers a dynamic and engaging approach that focuses on improving motor and visual skills, as well as cognition.

After discharge, should your child require ongoing care, our dedicated pediatric therapy center care team can visit your home to identify all possible challenges in the home. We then educate the family on any special needs your child may have and how to best address them, in order to ensure a comfortable transition.

NeuroRestorative4kids is currently offered at our two Las Vegas programs and in Utah.
