Mayo Clinic provides children, adolescents and families with education materials designed to complement information provided verbally throughout the rehabilitation stay. Printed materials, age-appropriate activity booklets, videotapes, DVDs and therapeutic play are all used as educational resources. Education focuses on:
- changes in body function
- skin care
- breathing techniques
- physical activity
- emotional transitions and coping skills
- returning to school
On admission each child receives "My Rehab Book," which provides an overview of rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic.
