What to Bring

For your child's comfort, we recommend clothes appropriate for physical activity, such as gym shorts, sweatpants, sweat-shirts or t-shirts. Please bring athletic shoes (sneakers with a sturdy sole and good arch support) for physical therapy and waterproof sandals or flip-flops for the pool area. A swimsuit is required for participating in hydrotherapy. Towels are provided by the program. All patients must shower prior to entering the pool for aquatic therapy. Please bring any personal items such as shampoo, soap and lotions that you may wish to use.

To help your child to keep up with school, we ask that you talk to your child’s school to provide any assignments or other schoolwork that can be completed during their stay at the PPRC. There is time during the day for them to work on these assignments. Prior to discharge from the PPRC, we will plan a conference call with your child’s school to help to facilitate school re-entry.

iPods and other mp3 players are allowed during breaks and as distractions during some treatment sessions. However, cell phone use is not permitted in the PPRC (smartphones are allowed as long as they are kept in airplane mode). Personal computers are permitted during study hall time.

Safeguard your belongings. If you bring items of value, keep them locked up when unattended. A locker is available in the PPRC for your use. Please be aware that Boston Children's is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
