Gracie was born with a very rare condition called Birk-Barel syndrome which is characterized by intellectual disability, hypotonia, hyperactivity, and unusual facial features. She had severe feeding issues and airway difficulties at birth but has already been discharged from feeding therapy because she has met all her goals. Gracie, her family and her feeding/speech therapist, Val Betts, worked very hard and now she can enjoy a meal with her family. Gracie’s diagnosis places her at one of only twenty-five in the world and the only one in Texas with the condition. Kristy, Gracie’s mom along with her dad and three older siblings feel she has the special gift of bringing all of them even closer together since she was born. Gracie’s parents were told about T2K in Amarillo from one of her many professionals she sees in Dallas.

THERAPY 2000 opens in Amarillo with an official ribbon cutting

THERAPY 2000 will host an official ribbon cutting with the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce this September 30th at 3 PM at their 8th floor, Suite 805 Chase[CS1]  Tower office in downtown Amarillo. The ribbon cutting is to celebrate the company’s first panhandle location.

THERAPY 2000 therapists are seeing patients in the cities of Amarillo, Canyon, Pampa and Panhandle. Crisann Skinner, Dumas native and THERAPY 2000 Division Director shared, “With the growing population of Amarillo and the surrounding areas we saw a need for our services. It can be a far drive for parents of patient’s receiving therapy to make each week in rural areas. Many kids in need of therapy see multiple therapists in multiple locations. We do the commute for you and see the kids in the comfort of their home. Children with special needs often benefit from services within the home in their natural environment because they can often receive the best care in a family-centered approach. That is why in –home pediatric care fills such a niche for parents.” THERAPY 2000 is on the lookout for more therapists to see a growing lists of patients.
