School Rehabilitation Service - Children - Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital

A hospital-based program that addresses the assessment and intervention needs of children who struggle with their learning and/or daily functioning related to medical/neurological conditions; speech and language, fine and gross motor, and visual and auditory perception skills.  Children are referred because Glenrose diagnostic clinics or community school-based services have been unable to fully address diagnostic questions pertaining to the child’s learning or daily functioning.

Children must:

  • have at least low average to average cognitive ability
  • be able to function in a group setting without disrupting other students; our classrooms are not designed to provide for students who have significant externalizing behaviours
  • be in Grades 1 through 6

The SRS (School Rehab Service) team works closely with each child’s family, community school and other community resources to identify effective strategies that will support the child’s successful learning in a classroom environment. 

Other community-based services for school-aged children (Grades 1-12), coordinated through the I CAN Centre addresses the needs of children who require assistive technology to support their learning in a classroom environment.  This service includes children who use speech generating communication devices and need specific intervention to facilitate the development of functional communication, language and literacy skills in the classroom.  Contact the I CAN Centre directly for information about these services.
