Pediatric Rehabilitation
As one of the largest rehabilitation providers in the Midwest, we help children reach goals and milestones that once felt impossible for them: from kids and teens regaining independence after an accident or surgery, to children reaching developmental milestones like feeding themselves and speaking. We make these great life moments happen in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
Complex Medical

We believe kids with complex medical needs deserve to live meaningful, fun-filled lives. We’re proud to offer several uniquely designed residential programs including the only pediatric long-term care program in the state of Iowa, as well as an outpatient Complex Care Clinic.

Behavioral Health & Autism

Our Behavioral Health & Autism experts help make amazing moments possible each day… The first time a child with autism tells their parent, “I love you;” the first time a child asks to play with a friend as they build social skills; children meeting emotional and behavioral milestones that once felt like insurmountable barriers. We seek to empower children with the tools they need to live a great life – inside and out!

Community Services

We offer a variety of community services to meet kids and teens where they’re at and help them build independence and connection. Whether we’re helping individuals in Supported Community Living develop daily skills like getting ready for school on their own, or providing teens in Day Habilitation a safe place to gain life and social skills while engaging with friends, we’re incredibly proud of the impact our community services make for families in Iowa.
