I remember the first time I held each of my baby boys in my arms.  As I looked into their precious faces and watched each breath they took, I knew I wanted the very best for them.  As parents, we do our best to provide our children with everything they need to make it through the bumps of childhood.  As we kiss playground scrapes and stay awake when they battle the flu, we hope that a moment never comes when our kids need more than our simple love and care.  But from developmental delays to little league injuries to treatments for long-term disabilities, parents often find themselves scrambling to find the best specialized care in the U.S. and for those who find themselves with a loved one with a disability most likely will be adding social security disability to their list for some extra support.

Hospital for Special Surgery understands the variety of emotions involved in having a child who needs medical care – be it sports injuries or long-term orthopedic conditions.  Founded in 1863, the New York City hospital is a world leader in orthopedics, rheumatology and rehabilitation.  To meet their growing need for pediatric rehabilitation, Hospital for Special Surgery opened the CA Technologies Rehabilitation Center within the Lerner Children’s Pavilion.  This family-focused space provides care for children in a beautiful, child-friendly space.  With various specialists and leading technology, the donation-funded CA Technologies Rehabilitation Center facilitates a positive and healing experience for patients and their families from surgery through recovery and beyond.  The CA Technologies Rehabilitation Center at the Children’s Pavilion provides comprehensive, individualized rehabilitation for both inpatients and outpatients from birth to 21 years.  Its multidisciplinary staff includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists.


I have friends who have children with disabilities and I know that finding the best medical care and doctors who want to make a difference is a priority for them.  After all, what parent doesn’t want what’s best for his or her child?  A big key to finding successful care is via word-of-mouth!  Connecting with other parents who have disabled children or participating in a support group is another key factor in parenting a child with a disability.  Hospital for Special Surgery is a great resource for parents everywhere.  Be sure to check out Hospital for Special Surgery on Facebook.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Hospital for Special Surgery. A small donation to a charity of my choice was made in my name as a thank you for participating. You should consult with your physician or other health care provider before beginning any rehabilitation/therapy, sports training, or exercise program.

    I have friends who have had challenges raising kids with disabilities, and it is comforting to have places like these there when needed.
