Every child is unique. That means every child deserves a unique approach to therapy – one that’s designed around their needs and abilities to improve their physical, social and daily living skills. At CoxHealth, our pediatric therapy program is built around this understanding, and the belief that family plays an incredibly important role in the therapy process.
