Neuro Recovery Center
The Brooks Rehabilitation Neuro Recovery Center provides a seamless transition between stages of recovery for patients within the Brooks Rehabilitation system of care. Traditionally, rehabilitation has focused on compensatory skills to make patients safe and functional in their home environment, without much emphasis on improving the body’s ability to move. New research shows that neuroplasticity (the brain and spinal cord’s ability to change, adapt and learn) requires intense, task specific, repetitive activities to maximize movement and thinking skills. The highest potential for recovery is during the first 1-2 years after an injury or illness, however, most patients usually receive only 5-6 months of recovery activities.
Adaptive Sports and Recreation
Whether it's wheelchair basketball, tennis, handcycling or adaptive rowing, those living with disabilities can rebuild their strength and sense of independence while increasing body awareness, building self-confidence, learning new life skills and even making new friends. Children and adults can participate at both recreational and competitive levels.
Brooks' School Re-entry program strives to be a national leader in providing school transition services for children with disabilities who have been treated at Brooks. Our School Re-entry Coordinator will focus on providing exceptional service to you and your child while educating you about the process and advocating for what is best for your child.
