School Re-entry Program

Inpatient

When you first arrive at our rehabilitation hospital, a School Re-entry specialist will meet with you and your child to assess his or her educational needs. They will then work closely with you, your child’s school and our medical team to coordinate school services throughout the hospital stay and following discharge. Our goal is to minimize lost academics and to maximize your child’s successful transition back to school.
