Welcome to the Developmental and Rehabilitation Services of Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. At Children's, our name says it all. We focus on children – from tiny premature infants, to toddlers, to adolescents. We are committed to improving the lives of children and families by providing high-quality, family-centered rehabilitation services.

Children's Developmental and Rehabilitation Services empowers children to reach their unique potential and level of independence. Although it looks like play, the work our clinicians do is serious. We help children reach their full developmental potential and include families in every step along the way. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to observe and even participate in treatment sessions and our clinicians teach families how to apply therapy techniques at home.

As the pediatric experts in the communities we serve, we offer a multidisciplinary approach amongst our various disciplines and programs. We also provide continuation of care across settings from inpatient to outpatient services.
