They will evolve and grow in strength to advocate for health, education, independence and community inclusion. They will learn to negotiate the joys and realities of living with differing abilities and they will emerge as young adults and families about to pursue their own dreams. EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN The Beaumont Children’s Center for Exceptional Families (CEF) is an “all-comers” medical and rehabilitative facility that treats all developmental disabilities, disorders and diagnoses. Children at CEF range from mildly developmentally delayed to multiply impaired children with fragile health conditions. Many children at the center have cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, autism, intellectual disabilities or genetic syndromes. Others are dealing with conditions related to other illnesses, accidents or traumatic births. EXCEPTIONAL REHABILITATION Pediatric specialists in physical, occupational, speech and feeding and swallowing therapies at CEF help exceptional children work to gain independence and skills that allow them to participate in the world around them. Our therapists have expertise in spasticity management, casting and splinting, wheelchair and equipment evaluations, gait training, assistive technology, sensory processing, autism, artificial airways, feeding and swallowing. EXCEPTIONAL SUPPORT CEF supports the whole family. We offer a range of support groups for mothers, fathers and other caregivers. This includes groups for parents of children with autism as well as educational groups on special education, community resources, financial topics and parenting. For siblings of patients with disabilities, we offer “sibshops”, a recreational based support/wellness program for siblings. We offer fitness, nutrition and recreational events for the whole family to attend together. Additionally, we host summer camps, play and social skills groups, and we have created affordable private-pay options for families without insurance benefits. EXCEPTIONAL FUTURE In living its mission and operating a welcoming learning environment for families and professionals, CEF serves as a model for future medical professionals, educators and families. The inclusive opportunities we offer help children and families gain confidence to demand inclusion in their communities. We provide leadership and mentoring to help teens and young adults with disabilities pursue their dreams. EXCEPTIONAL MEDICINE At CEF, we pride ourselves on coordinating care for children with special needs – guiding families through the overwhelming number of specialists, programs, agencies and school issues that they face. In addition, we offer multidisciplinary medical clinics for children requiring spasticity management, autism diagnostics and follow-up, and management of chronic health conditions.
