My daughter who is now 16, has been receiving therapy here since she was 6 months old. This organization is truely a life saver. The physical/occupational/speech therapists are the best in Central Illinois. The ornganization is extremely well organized and no child is ever declined help sue to a lack of ability to pay. This is one of the top three social service agencies in central Illinois !
