Service With a "Smile"

Did you see our latest blog post?

Speech therapist Marissa Habeshy recently went to China as a volunteer for Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that provides free cleft lip and palate surgeries to children all over the world, especially in hard to reach areas. Her experience doing the work she loves in a culture very different from our own is both fascinating and inspiring.

A Change is Coming to Kid's Creek

In the summer of 2006, the movies  Cars  and  Happy Feet  hit the theaters, Daniel Powter's song  Bad Day was a big hit, Facebook was opened up to everyone over age 13, the iPhone was still a year away from launch, and most of our patients hadn't even been born yet! 2006 was also the year in which Kid's Creek Therapy last raised our rates.

It is a privilege to serve our patients and their families. We understand how vital speech, occupational, and physical therapy are to the children we serve, so we don't take lightly any decision to make changes that will impact our kids - especially financial ones. But market circumstances dictate that we must raise our rates in order to continue to effectively serve your children who are so dear to our hearts.

Our new rate structure will go into effect on August 1, 2016. Please speak with Amanda at the front desk for more information or to ask questions.
Interested in an Afternoon Session Time Slot?

We currently have a few open time slots in the afternoons for speech and OT. Contact Amanda at the front desk if you are interested in grabbing one of these coveted spots before they're gone!
It's Time to Confirm for Fall!

As we're sure you do, we experience a different kind of rhythm during the summer months. Life is more laid back, more fluid, more flexible. We'll be sad to see it end, like so many of our families. Now that we're past the halfway point of summer, on the downhill slope headed toward the new school year, it's time to look ahead toward the fall. Please consider your needs and begin confirming sessions for the new school year - it'll be here before you know it!
WE LOVE REFERRALS!

Do you know a child who needs our help? Let their parents know that we offer  FREE CONSULTATIONS and SCREENINGS . Many people are looking for a speech, occupational, or physical therapist for their child, and want to find a place that not only produces results, but values both the child and his/her family.
 
To refer a friend, have them mention your name and we'll take care of the rest. Plus, you will receive a Starbucks gift card for our refer-a-friend award program!
