The April Rehabilitation Partner Center was established in 2017 and uses modern international approaches to the rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy. In this case, specific goals are consistently set and achieved in improving the physical condition of the child. The main method is physical therapy, which helps to shape social skills.
We help improve the quality of life of a child and family through the development of motor and social skills
With children from 2 to 18 years old with musculoskeletal disorder
2-3 classes per week in our center for 2-3 months, parent training for self-studying at home
Large and fine motor skills, walking, manipulations with objects
Thinking, learning, problem solving, attention
Speech, nonverbal cues, ability to make choices, listening, understanding others
Food, dressing up, playing together, interacting with others
Often, children with cerebral palsy cannot do the things we are familiar with: hold a spoon, open the door, press a button on a smartphone, sit down, make steps. We work on improvement of the quality of children's life.
Work on the manifestation of the symptoms of the disease as the child grows older: dislocation of the hip joint, contracture (limitation of joint mobility), spasticity (painful cramps), insomnia, joint pain, etc.
Development of speech skills through the work with a speech therapist, work with a psychologist, socialization of a child, involvement in inclusive events
Rehabilitation in cerebral palsy is a continuous learning/retraining of a child’s brain. Therefore, it is impossible to conduct in courses
The main goals are not medical, but social. Medicine is a method of achieving a goal, but not the goal itself
Cerebral palsy is a multiple disorders, so a multidisciplinary team of specialists works with a child
The team in its work relies on proven methods and international protocols
Strictly international protocols, scales and standards — there are still very few such clinics in the post-Soviet space
Work within evidence-based medicine — the methods are based on clear evidence of efficacy and safety from clinical trials
The team has all the rehabilitation specialists, so the amount of necessary assistance can be obtained in one place
Multidisciplinarity — the patient is led by a team of specialists who together develop tactics and exchange information
Patient and family involvement in setting rehabilitation goals
There are coordinators who are in touch with the family and represent the interests of the patient in the team
Own training center - since there are no methods in Russia and no training system for specialists, we have opened our own training center

Rehabilitation takes place on the basis of the children's sanatorium of the Presidential Affairs Department "Polyany".
The rehabilitation system combines several methods at once, such as: engaging in adaptive roller sports, according to the innovative method “Dream Ski. Rollers”, imperative-correcting techniques of the adaptive methodology of the foundation "Gift to an Angel". For the first time, such practices were included in the in-patient rehabilitation program, which made it possible to comprehensively approach the issue of rehabilitation of children with special needs. The sanatorium "Polyany", as part of its treatment, uses the latest medical technologies, such as classes on the h|p|cosmos hardware complex using the biological feedback principle, as well as classes on the verticalizer and the motionmaker robotic complex.
The launch of such a joint program was made possible thanks to the support of a permanent partner fund "SUEK-REGIONS"
