At Cedarcrest, we provide comprehensive specialized therapy services for children. Our therapists assess the child and develop a therapy program, employing a range of techniques and equipment to promote optimal function. Each child receives therapy services in the therapy gym, classroom, residence, or on our adapted playground. The therapists work closely with direct care and educational staff to provide programming throughout the child’s day.
