Children's Rehabilitation Service (CRS) is a statewide system of services for children with special health care needs and their families, and adults with hemophilia. Every county in Alabama is served through a network of 14 community-based offices staffed with skilled professionals who provide quality medical, rehabilitative, and educational support services.
Using a comprehensive, culturally competent and family-centered approach, CRS partners with numerous public and private organizations: a collaborative network that provides specialty clinics and other services by physicians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, occupational therapists, registered dietitians, parent consultants, youth consultants, vocational evaluators, secretaries, and administrators.
CRS also collaborates with local school systems and families to address the complex issues associated with each student’s disabilities and special health care needs, helping children to be as independent as possible at school. Through services such as counseling, specialized therapy, and assistive technology for children and families, and disability training for teachers and school staff, CRS offers the support vital to classroom success.
