At St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, the depth and breadth of our pediatric rehabilitation services are unparalleled—and focused on one goal:
To help every child achieve their personal best.
Whether delivered inpatient at our state-of-the-art Dr. Burton Grebin Rehabilitation Center, in the community at St. Mary’s Kids at Roslyn or in the comfort of a patient’s own home, our dynamic rehabilitation programs are designed to help patients reach their own “firsts” in an atmosphere that’s fun, kid-friendly and family-welcoming.
When a child’s difficulty moving impacts daily life, our highly skilled physical therapists work with them—and their family—using a variety of innovative techniques designed to help build strength, improve movement, restore maximum movement and functional ability, and prevent injuries from recurring.
Using a multifaceted approach to improving physical, cognitive, visual and emotional functions, our skilled therapists focus on helping children gain independence in all aspects of their daily lives, maximize skills and abilities, enhance their confidence, and gain a sense of accomplishment.
Our team of New York State licensed speech pathologists provides comprehensive evaluations and treatment for children and adolescents with a variety of speech, language and feeding disorders. This may include using augmentative communication, which allows nonverbal patients to interface with technology.
This program helps babies who are often at risk of developmental delays reach key milestones. Working together with occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech professionals, each baby is treated using play, feeding and massage therapy to engage and develop all of their senses.
Constrained Induced Movement
Based on research pioneered at St. Mary’s, our innovative treatment for hemiplegia—partial paralysis caused by injury to the brain—helps children with neurological problems affecting their arms and hands, such as cerebral palsy or a traumatic brain injury, regain use of a weakened limb.
Locomotor Training (LT)
LT is an intensive individualized therapy program that improves function in persons with spinal cord injury and other neurological diagnoses. The interventions in this program focus on sending appropriate input to the nervous system in a systematic way so that it can learn tasks such as sitting upright, standing, and walking.
A Pediatric Rehabilitation Center Like No Other
Named for the pioneer who revolutionized care for children with special needs, the Dr. Burton Grebin Rehabilitation Center at St. Mary’s Hospital continues Dr. Grebin’s legacy with 12,000 square feet of enhanced indoor rehabilitation therapy areas as well as outdoor space that’s bright, colorful—and cutting-edge.
Unique Municipal Credit Union Outdoor Rehab Track
Enables patients to navigate sidewalks, stop signs and even a few bumps in the road, well before they actually are ready to leave the hospital.
Activities of Daily Living Suite
Prepares patients and families for life at home—and in the community—to help make the transition back to real life as seamless as possible.
