Thanks for checking out today’s post. After reading I’d love to hear your thoughts on the comments by clicking here —> Pediatric Plus is Coming to Frisco!
(Note – we were compensated by Pediatric Plus in exchange for this post and sharing it on social media. However, we are fans of this organization, and it’s leadership… and if you live within driving distance to one of their locations, we think this post will be useful to you!)
When Noah was younger and working to accomplish some of his early milestones, we spent a good amount of time taking him to his physical, occupational, and speech therapy appointments. (In fact, he was doing pediatric treadmill training long before he could walk!) We’re fortunate that we live in an area with access to many great therapy resources.
At times, Noah was in daycare while also needing to go to his various therapy appointments, which meant a fair amount of travel time. It would have been great if there would have been a way to combine Noah’s daycare with his private therapy sessions! This was one of the great things I liked about Pediatrics Plus, a specialized pediatric healthcare provider based out of Arkansas that my wife and I recently visited. They are opening their first location in Frisco, Texas in the coming weeks, and if you live within driving distance to one of their locations, I think this post will interest you!
What is Pediatric Plus?
Pediatric Plus is unique in that they offer both a developmental preschool and private therapy sessions. As a parent of a child with special needs, this alone makes Pediatric Plus stand out. They are based out of Arkansas where they have several locations and are now bringing their organization to Texas. Check out this description from their website:
Pediatrics Plus is a specialized pediatric healthcare provider. We are committed to helping your child succeed in all stages of life through evidence-based therapy and education, diagnostic services, state of the art facilities, specialized equipment, family support, and community investment.
Pediatrics Plus outpatient therapy provides occupational, physical, and speech language therapy. Our therapists provide a comprehensive evaluation focused on the specific needs of the child and family and develop an individualized treatment plan based on those needs. Therapeutic interventions are used to help a variety of challenges that children may have including: language, pragmatics, auditory processing, speech, oral motor, feeding, swallowing, daily living, strength, range of motion, flexibility, balance, posture, body mechanics, coordination, and endurance.
If Pediatrics Plus would have been near us when Noah was younger, it seems like it would have been a great fit for him!
What I Liked
We had a chance to talk to the owners, and tour one of their facilities in Arkansas, and I was impressed! The facilities were top notch. They were clean, excellent looking, and looked well taken care of. We were able to see at least one of the classes in action and it was great to see that it was an inclusive classroom. (Meaning there were typical kids and kids special needs in the same class.)
As nice as the facilities were, I really liked the owners and the leadership The leadership of an organization matters, and this is a staff that really seems to know what they are doing. Pediatrics Plus also has a non-profit called “Community Connections” that allows children with special needs to attend various camps (I believe for free!)
From what I read on their website it looks like they made an individual treatment plan for each child instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, which is great. Onother things I learned is that in Arkansas the state pays for a child’s therapy regardless of the family’s income! I wish that happened in Texas (Where we live.) However, the leadership wants to work to get the same thing to happen in Texas! Wouldn’t that be great? In fact, I would like to see that happen all across the United States.
If you’re in driving distance of Frisco, Texas, or live in Arkansas, be sure to take a look at their website and the various services they offer.
If your child receives therapies where do they go (and how often) do them? Leave a comment below and let us know!
