Our pediatric Preventative Medicine program is gearing up to be unlike any other. Not only will it assist with rehabilitation following surgeries and procedures, but it will also prevent secondary comorbidities from developing. The pediatric physical therapy doctors at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation are specially trained to improve the daily function of children with a wide range of medical diagnoses. They will diagnose and treat neurological, musculoskeletal, and functional impairments and conditions which commonly coincide with treatments such as chemotherapy. The role of our doctors is to work with the child and their family to help the child reach his or her maximum potential and decrease pain, while promoting active participation at home, school and in the community. Thank you to to generous donations of The Robert and Dorothy Keyser Foundation and the Cashman Family Foundation for helping make our dreams a reality.
Our newest branch of our Preventative Medicine department is Speech-Language Pathology. This is the specialty of speech, language, cognition, feeding and swallowing. Applying the theories and mechanisms of language, while correcting and augmenting current function, allows our children to improve their ability to confidently communicate and interact with the world around them.
