Rehabilitation Medicine

Children's of Alabama exists to provide pediatric health services to all children and adolescents with the vision of a better future for each child. Working to help make this vision a reality are pediatric specialists in the Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, who serve children with conditions affecting motor development, function and independence.

The Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine at Children's of Alabama Hospital utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to address the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of congenital and childhood onset physical impairments including related or secondary medical, physical, functional, psychosocial, cognitive and vocational limitations or conditions, with an understanding of the life course of disability.

Our program collaborates with other agencies and organizations to serve children with disabilities. Child/family involvement in support groups and educational programs is encouraged when appropriate. Together with children and family members, the Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine serves as an advocate for disabled children with the goal that each child will be able to achieve the highest level of independent functioning possible.
