The Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Brain Injury Program, within the Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit (CIRU), is designed to get patients to the functional level necessary to return home and to re-enter daily routines as quickly as possible. The rehabilitation team incorporates the patient's parents or caregivers to reach the ultimate goal of going home. Benefits of the program include:
*Treatment from birth to age 21
*Patient and family support groups
*28 bed facility—the largest pediatric inpatient rehabilitation facility in the country
*Summer program for teenagers with traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
Many discharged patients continue receiving rehabilitative care in the Children’s Day Rehabilitation Program or Children's Outpatient clinics.
