The Kids in Motion program strives to achieve the highest standards in physical, occupational and speech therapy by providing its services in an environment that is clean, safe and stimulating for both mind and body. Following Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) which states that early intervention services “are provided in natural environments, including the home, and community settings in which children without disabilities participate” (Sec. 632(4) (G), (H)), the Kids in Motion center is similar to an indoor playground or children’s fitness center. Our therapists also provide services under Parts B and C of IDEA to the surrounding school districts and have a solid understanding of therapeutic services required to allow a child to access the campus or curriculum to optimize learning.
Additionally, Marcie and her Kids in Motion team create treatment programs that integrate the entire family into the therapy process. This philosophy helps strengthen family bonds, and also helps the family members who are the child’s caregivers.
