Education for school-aged patients

During the rehabilitation stay, you or your loved one may need to continue with school work.  The social worker with the rehabilitation team will contact the school system where the patient is enrolled and keep in close contact with the principal and guidance staff.  The school will put together a homebound program for the patient to keep up with daily assignments while in rehabilitation.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure the patient receives the proper assignments and to assist with communication of the patient’s status to the school system.
