For many years, Wendell Foster was thought of as a therapeutic residential community for people diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, 1 in 323 children has been identified with CP.
While we continue to lead in that area, many of our clients seek outpatient therapy services where autism, speech delays, torticollis (asymmetrical head or neck position), traumatic brain injury and genetic disorders are the primary diagnoses.
Many of Wendell Foster’s pediatric outpatient clients attend therapy several times a week. Our therapists have a knack for finding creative ways to engage the child in activities that will support their individual goals. Play is an important part of learning for a young child. If you can have fun while making progress toward your goals, then it is a win-win! Stay tuned for more exciting updates on the new outpatient expansion.
