Founded in 2004 and born out of a desire to help children who face challenges in their development to progress and achieve their potential, we provide pediatric speech, physical, and occupational therapy.

Today, we serve children and their families in the Wenatchee, Moses Lake, Spokane, and Kennewick/Tri-Cities areas with a team of over 40 professional therapists and therapy assistants and staff. We believe that the most effective approach for success is one that stresses early intervention, open communication, family involvement, and a fun, playful environment where children are relaxed and more receptive. Simply put, we help kids get better.
