Our Treatment Approach:
All of our programs provide interdisciplinary treatment from a team that works together to meet our patients' needs. When a patient begins any of the Fairmount Rehabilitation Programs, our team works closely with the family to develop an individualized treatment plan, with an overarching goal of increasing independence at home, school and in community life.
Constraint-Induced & Bimanual Therapy Program -- Through this program, we provide intensive therapy for children and adolescents with hemiparesis. We use an evidence-based understanding of the brain's natural ability to form new connections to increase function and independence.
Focused Interdisciplinary Therapy Program -- This program offers intensive therapy to children and adolescents with persistent, disabling conditions. Treatments target specific therapeutic goals to help them improve physical abilities, daily activities, communication skills and cognitive skills.
Pain and Chronic Health Impairments Program -- This program utilizes a collaborative interdisciplinary and evidence-based approach to address the needs of young people with persistent pain and/or chronic health conditions that limit their functional abilities in day-to-day life. Working from a biopsychosocial and patient-centered perspective, treatment is individualized and focuses on improvement in daily functioning, endurance, pain science education, self-management of symptoms, engagement in life roles, and overall improvement in quality of life. In this intensive day-hospital program, patients receive daily therapies that restore physical stamina and build awareness between the mind-body connection.
Community Rehabilitation Program -- This program provides rehabilitation in the patient's home and other important community settings. Our services range from intensive, daily therapy for patients with acute needs to helping individuals with less severe issues return to community activities.
Specialized Transition Program -- This day hospital model was developed to treat children and adolescents with intensive therapeutic needs and provides the full range of cognitive and physical rehabilitation services for neurological and orthopedic conditions. The goal is to help our patients make a successful transition to home, school, and community life.
