The MENTOR Network

Youth with Brain and Spinal Cord Injury

At The MENTOR Network, we understand that brain and spinal cord injuries, as well as other neurological injuries and illnesses, can happen at any age. We also know that children who have experienced these injuries require specialized care tailored to their specific needs, age and interests.

Through our partners NeuroRestorative, CareMeridian and Mentis Neuro Health, we offer an array of rehabilitation services to help children and their families overcome challenges, regain and develop skills, and continue to meet developmental milestones during the rehabilitation process. Our team of adolescent and pediatric rehabilitation experts support children and their families every step of the way.

brain injury services for youth


NeuroRestorative offers children and adolescents an array of post-acute brain injury rehabilitation services, ranging from neurorehabilitation and day treatment to transitional living and respite. Our goal is to provide the individualized services each child needs in comfortable, community-based settings where they can continue to learn and grow.

Academic Programs

NeuroRestorative’s pediatric programs also offer a focus on academics. Our Adolescent Integration School in Carbondale, Illinois, offers students ages 11 to 21 an innovative environment where they can continue their studies and receive the specialized support they need to succeed. The school is approved by the Illinois State Board of Education as a nonpublic residential facility and has been serving adolescents with brain injury for more than two decades.

Located on over 300 acres of land in the foothills of the Ozarks, NeuroRestorative’s Timber Ridge School, is approved by the Arkansas Board of Education to serve children with brain injuries ages 5-17 years old. Children and teens live in beautiful cabins where they have the opportunity to receive specialized services, attend school and enjoy therapeutic activities alongside their peers.


CareMeridian’s state-of-the-art Pediatric Rehabilitation program in Las Vegas, Nevada—the only subacute, pediatric-only facility in the state—was designed to provide children with a safe, home like environment while they receive specialized, skilled care during their recovery. Offering a 1:4 staff-to-patient ratio, we’ve created an atmosphere that is conducive to our young patients’ recovery, including distinctly decorated rooms that appeal to children and rehabilitation equipment especially designed for them.
