Our Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program provides longitudinal care to support patients and families through all phases of brain injury rehabilitation.
From infants to young adults, we treat patients who are suffering with brain injuries, and collaborate across specialties to bring your child high-quality, family-centered care.
Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan with families being an integral part of the planning process. Once treatment begins, our experts will monitor and manage the medical, cognitive and behavioral complications of your child’s brain injury. You will be involved every step of the way, receiving progress updates and discussing discharge plans throughout the stay.
Cincinnati Children’s has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for our inpatient rehabilitation and pediatric specialty care programs since 1997, for our brain injury program since 2015, and for our cancer and pain programs since 2018.
The effects of a brain injury vary from person to person. It may affect memory, cognition, communication and movement. It can also affect personality and behavior.
The recovery journey will be different for each patient, and some steps may take longer than others, but our team will be there to support you every step of the way.
Upon discharge, further support is available including school intervention, home care, and outpatient services from the Brain Health and Wellness Center.

Tracking outcomes and statistics of inpatient pediatric rehabilitation patients and sharing this information with our families is an important part of how we work to continually improve care. It is our hope that this results in a better quality of life for you and your child.
