big sky new program announcement

Big Sky Pediatric Therapy is pleased to announce a new program!

We have teamed with a psychologist specializing in developmental psychology and early childhood assessments, a BCBA, an educational consultant, in combination with our own OT, PT and ST therapists to form a collaborative assessment and care team focused on ages birth through 6 years old. This will be a unique opportunity for parents searching for answers for their children. The benefits will be that a team of healthcare professionals will have the chance to present a unified plan and recommendations for the family. Parents will then have the opportunity after the process to be paired with a peer mentor (a parent who has been through similar circumstances) to share experiences and answer questions on a personal level.


For more information about Big Sky's Collaborative Assessment and Care, please click here or contact Dori Chappell - dori.chappell@bigskyfriends.com or (512) 306-8007 ext. 210.
