The mission of Kids in Motion Therapy Clinic is to provide physical, occupational and speech therapy for the children of Whatcom County and surrounding areas including but not limited to those with neuromuscular disorders.
Currently there are long waiting lists for children to receive these therapies in our area. Parents either have to drive their children long distances, keep their children on a waiting list in hopes their child will not miss too many milestones or just go without treatment for their child.
The wait lists range from 2-6 months for an evaluation for these therapies. This does not include getting the child on the caseload for treatment. This can take even longer.
Children grow and change at such a rapid rate that having to wait can put the child even further behind.
Physical Therapy service assists children in developing strength, range of motion and to reach milestones such as sitting, standing, crawling, walking, and grasping objects.
Occupational Therapy service assists children in mastering skills necessary for successful daily living, such as eating, bathing, dressing and writing.
Speech Therapy service assists children in developing successful communication skills by addressing such skills as phonation, intonation, speech mechanics, syntax, grammar, semantics, meaning and pragmatics.
