Pediatric rehabilitation and education at FINR utilizes a specialized program to meet the unique needs of children and adolescents (age 4 and up).
In family-style homes and special education classroom settings children learn the necessary skills to return to their families and community school.
Unfortunately, many children who come to FINR following a traumatic brain injury (TBI) had acquired skills prior to their injury but those previously learned skills require re-training and re-learning.
Because of their lack of success with relationships, daily living tasks and skills, and failure experienced within family, community, and school, many children are not motivated to learn or change their behaviors.
Many do not respond to natural consequences within their environment.
Until children do begin to respond to the positive and negative natural social consequences of their environment, it is necessary to utilize precision teaching and motivation strategies that become an integral part of the teaching process for successful re-integration to school, community, and family.
