Lee Hepler was in a very bad accident before he was brought to The Hospital at The Children’s Institute. There was little hope that he would regain use of his limbs or speech, but throughout a nine-month stay, he improved day by day. For families like Lee’s, a stay of this length requires a lot of support. The Children’s Institute provides services to families who have children like Lee, with a long road of therapy ahead of them. Stays in nearby Heasley House, home evaluations and innovative therapies are just a few of the ways The Children’s Institute lends a hand to children with special needs and their families.
Patients Logan McMaster and Maya Torres come to The Hospital at The Children’s Institute and make amazing strides toward independence. Find out more about inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services at The Children’s Institute in this video.
For many families of children with special needs, the demands are seemingly endless. No appointment, project or undertaking can be carried out without planning for the medically specialized care of their child. Respite – an interval of rest – is essential for families to care for their children with special needs, their siblings and themselves.
When a child is suffering from chronic pain that seems to last longer than expected, the problem may be a condition known as reflex neurovascular dystrophy (RND). Zane Barnett and his mother didn’t know where to turn when his pain started to affect his life. Watch how the RND program at The Hospital at The Children’s Institute helped Zane to cope with the pain that kept him from normal activities.
