A Visit to Kid*Ability
Today the AAP and PACE staff took a field trip in the rain and snow to 8031 Center Street in Omaha to visit Kid*Ability, part of the Snyder Charleson Therapy Services group, to learn about their various services for kids and adults on the autism spectrum. We were invited by Deanna Twait, a speech and language pathologist at Kid*Ability, and we got a chance to visit with the staff and tour the facility. We were impressed with how sensory-friendly it was and the wide variety of programs for kids and adults on the spectrum.
According to Deanna:
"Kid*Ability provides Comprehensive Pediatric Therapy Services to children birth to 18 years of age. Their services include Occupational; Physical, and Speech/Language Therapy in a variety of settings.
