Hemiplegia Center

The Burke-Blythedale Hemiplegia Center is a multidisciplinary center where children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy can receive expert medical care and participate in state-of-the-art rehabilitation research.

The team will meet and discuss their recommendations for optimal care with parents. If appropriate, patients and parents will be told about clinical research studies that are ongoing at Burke and Blythedale.

•Full assessments for children with hemiplegia.
•Referrals to therapies and treatments, including physical, occupational, speech, and vision therapies.
•Treatment of spasticity and joint contractures.
•Enrollment in cutting-edge clinical research trials, including robotic therapy, intensive hand therapy, and non-invasive brain stimulation.
