"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In Patient School Services
Highly qualified teachers, art therapists, music therapists, and other related service personnel will work with your child's home school division to keep him or her up to date and on track with school work while in their in-patient hospital or treatment center stay. We can contact your child's home school to get homework assignments and maintain progress in their courses and schoolwork. We have access to online educational software and systems to keep them connected and learning while in the hospital. All credit and grades earned through participating in the Hospital Education Program are transferred back to your home school division and counted as credit. In-patient admissions can be at the Children's Hospital Downtown Campus or the Brook Road Campus.
In Patient Educational Consultation Services
During your child's stay as an in-patient in any of our facilities, qualified Educational Consultants may provide educational evaluations and reports which can be used to support your child's transition from the hospital back into school. Educational consultants may provide information to child study teams; assist in providing information to help others understand and explain the educational implications of conditions, disabilities, or the illness of your child; provide on-going support throughout your child's in-patient stay with the Children's Hospital of Richmond and help ease the transition back into their home school.
Out Patient Educational Consultation Services
Qualified Educational consultants may provide educational assessments, evaluations, and reports during your clinic visit. Like in-patient consultants, out-patient consultants work with children seen in any of the State supported clinics at the Children's Hospital of Richmond. Currently, these clinics include the Hemophilia, Sickle Cell, Child Development, and Care Connection for Children clinics. Educational consultants may provide information to child study teams; assist in providing information to help others understand and explain the educational implications of conditions, disabilities, or illness of your child; and provide on-going support throughout your child's out-patient visits within State supported clinics at the Children's Hospital of Richmond.
