FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A child in Marshall, Texas with a rare genetic disorder is receiving the weekly in-home care she needs, thanks to new company cars at THERAPY 2000 Tyler. The Dallas-based company announced twenty new cars that will help them to provide home pediatric therapy services to children and their families across the state.

“One in six children is currently diagnosed with a developmental disability or delay, and these new cars help provide care for them at home,” said THERAPY 2000 exec, Jerre van den Bent. “Our new cars will enable us to make the long East Texas drives to different towns to help children like A‘Shana who need physical, occupational and speech therapy at home several times a week.”

A’Shana was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome, when she was born, and lives with her grandparents. She needs occupational, physical and speech therapy twice a week.
“Since children like A’Shana are medically fragile, taking them to different offices several times a week can be dangerous and increases the likelihood of them catching an illness out of the controlled environment of their homes,” said Molly Webb, her speech therapist. “Our home health therapies address these patient needs and provide a convenient support system for working parents who are trying to meet the demands of multiple appointments each week.”

THERAPY 2000 offers in-home care pediatric occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech language pathology from infancy to adolescence (0-21 years of age) in Texas. Services are determined on an individual basis and include treatment for the following:

  • Developmental Disability and Delay
  • Speech/Language Delay
  • Feeding and Swallowing Disorders
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Prematurity
  • Congenital Disorders/Injury
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Down Syndrome
  • Sensory Processing Disorders
  • ADD/ ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

“In a child’s natural environment, home health allows for better carryover of parent/caregiver education and improve the child’s abilities faster, while lessening the need for as many treatment sessions,” said Molly Webb, speech therapist. “A’Shana is now recovering at home from a recent tracheotomy, and THERAPY 2000 is supporting supporting her until her trachea gets stronger with age.”
