My son has a syndrome with multiple issues. He's received therapy at the Center since he was an infant, including speech, physical, and occupational therapy. He has made amazing progress, exceeding many of his doctors' predictions. And he continues to move forward. The Center has been amazing!

My introduction to the Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Baton Rouge came in 1970 when our family moved from NY to Baton Rouge. Our youngest of 6 children was 2 years old and had cerebral palsy. The Center introduced him to an intensive weekly program of physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Therapies continued until he was 20 years old. Today, at the age of 42, he is able to live alone with some attendant help. He works part time at a local hospital and enjoys the independence and opportunities afforded him by those years of therapy. He is very much indebted to the CPA of GBR.

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.
