Outpatient therapy programs and services are offered in collaboration with TIRR Memorial Hermann Adult and Pediatric Outpatient Rehabilitation at the Kirby Glen Center just outside the Texas Medical Center.

We also provide educational material and community resource information to the patient and caregiver, as well as monthly support groups.
