Day Center Vuori is open Mon–Fri 8:00–15:30.

The Day Center provides care and performs diagnostic examinations for children who are on the autism spectrum or have other neurological difficulties. Children, with their parent/parents, take part in treatment periods usually lasting 1 to 3 days. The length of the examination days varies on an individual basis.

The Day Center’s multi-professional team includes a pediatric neurologist, neuropsychologist, speech and occupational therapists, physiotherapist, social worker, special education teacher, and the child’s personal nurse (pediatric practical nurse or a registered nurse).

The Day Center is responsible for diagnosing, evaluating rehabilitation needs and planning rehabilitation, and performing guidance and follow-ups for families. Close collaboration with the family and the child's environment are at the core of our operation. As part of our operations, we arrange visits to the child’s home, daycare, or school and set up meetings with everyone involved.

Day Center Vuori has space for 11 patients. Most rooms are single patient rooms.
