International Center for Spinal Cord Injury at Kennedy Krieger Institute

The program offers a coordinated continuum of care with services for individuals at all phases of recovery, including an in-patient hospital unit, home- and community-based services, and outpatient specialty programs. Located in Baltimore, Maryland, ICSpinal Cord Injury is one of the first facilities in the world to combine innovative research with a unique focus on restoration and rehabilitation for children and adults with chronic paralysis. The School Programs at Kennedy Krieger Institute has recieved awards in leadership and special education.
