Review for Cerebral Palsy Association Of Greater Baton Rouge, Inc., Baton Rouge, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Evan has been going to McMains for PT, OT, and ST since he was 3 years old (he is now 10). The therapy Evan has recieved has been outstanding. Besides therapy the McMains staff also provide other activities for Evan to participate in such as capable arts summer camp, canoeing, and bike racing. The therapists participate in these other activities to incorporate therapy into fun activities and to keep the activities safe. These extracurricular activities have provided Evan with opportunities to learn, socialize, and have a feeling of accomplishment. McMains is also the only clinic in the Baton Rouge area that offers therasuit therapy. Evan was able to make significant step changes in his strength, flexibility, and range of motion as a result of the therasuit therpy he received at McMains.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a parent, McMains does a great job at working with our schedules and budgets, and the social workers do a great job at being an advisor and liason between us and all the other services provided at the center.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I know this probably isn't realistic, but if I could make any changes I would offer therapy after school so Evan wouldn't have to miss any school. I would also offer therasuit therapy after school or on weekends so Evan wouldn't have to wait until summer to benefit from intensive PT.
