Special Kids was started over 16 years ago and has grown a lot throughout the years. They serve children with special needs from the birth to 21 years of age. Some of their services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing services, and recreational therapy, commonly called play therapy.
Children like Quinn are able to grow a lot physically by using play therapy. The wheelbarrow walk helps her develop core and upper body strength. Her grandfather David Seadorf recalls when she first started Special Kids, not being able to walk and the growth she's made through their programs.
Recently Special Kids opened their new 7,000 square foot facility on East Main Street. "This means more than just square-footed, this means reaching even more children," says Director of Marketing Ginger Spencer. She says all of the growth in this ministry is a blessing and is a result of their supportive staff, board members, and years of praying.
