Getting Back To School

Back to School Wording with Colored PencilsCan you believe it’s time for school to start again? It seems like it just gets earlier and earlier every year. Everyone has their own opinions about short summers versus long breaks throughout the year. However, one thing is certain: education is important.

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” -John Dewey

At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we offer effective treatment for children post surgery or serious illness. We will tailor your child’s rehabilitation for her specific needs and help get her back to a life of normal function and quality as soon as possible.

We understand the challenges your child can face if he misses school due to an injury or illness. Missing school is just one of the many challenges. Here are a few ways to help your child participate in school while getting the rehabilitation that he needs.

  1. Communication with the teacher or teachers is key. Make sure the administration and teachers know about the rehabilitation that your child is undergoing. They will be able to help you navigate missed assignments and hopefully offer other options or extended due dates for completion.
  2. Make sure your child has the proper tools for success. If your child requires modifications in order to participate successfully in school, make sure she has it each day.
  3. Keep a mindset of ‘slow and steady’. Remember change takes time. Don’t rush your child back to doing things that could actually harm or prevent recovery and more missed school.

At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we make life feel better. Call and schedule your adolescent/teen rehabilitation appointment today.
