  • Overview

    The Spinal Cord Injury/Disorders (SCI-D) Day Treatment Program is an interdisciplinary day treatment program designed to bridge the gap between traditional inpatient and outpatient service delivery.  Patients with spinal cord injuries/disorders who are accepted into the program will receive physical, occupational, and speech individual and group therapies for approximately six hours a day, five days a week.  In addition, the program will have oversight from a medical director with specialized training in spinal cord injuries and a psychologist.  The SCI-D team and program will focus on community reintegration and managing ongoing medical needs.  Patients can participate in the program for 6-12 weeks working toward a goal of a smooth transition into the community and next level of care. 

     

    SCI-D will initially be housed in the Neuro Recovery Center, with the anticipation that in the future it will move locations as it grows.  Patients and therapists will have access to various technologies and other Brooks services while in the program, including the Adaptive Sports program and Recreational Therapy.

     

    Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is responsible for patient evaluation and the application of a wide variety of therapeutic techniques for the rehabilitation of patients with speech and language disorders, hearing disorders, and swallowing disorders.
