Pediatric rehabilitation is all the measures implemented for children and adolescents with or likely to have a disability.
The goals of pediatric rehabilitation are the resumption of activities as well as social participation at home, at leisure and at school.
Available under medical prescription in France, pediatric rehabilitation care can be carried out in different places (hospitals, rehabilitation and education centers, SESSAD, CAMSP, private practice, home, school…).
The field of rehabilitation brings together some thirty diffrent professions (physicians in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (PMR), pediatricians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, psychomotor therapists, psychologists, social workers, specialized educators, nurses, childcare assistants, etc.), which justifies multidisciplinary coordination between the actors involved in a common therapeutic project.
