Isn't it time children had their own place to complete therapy and achieve functional independence?

It is because of Children's Miracle Network, the Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier can offer a program like K.I.D.S. Clinic. Children can complete their physical, occupational and speech therapies in an environment that 100% caters to them.

The goal of the K.I.D.S. (Key Interdisciplinary Developmental Services) Clinic is to help children with physical and/or cognitive deficits to achieve their highest level of functional independence. Both pediatric outpatient and inpatient care is provided by the expert staff.

Bobby Cox, Christus Health's Children's Miracle Network Program Director, had this to say about K.I.D.S. Clinic:

The therapists will use technology during treatment sessions, in addition to other interventions (games), designed to best meet each individual child’s therapy goals. Incorporating current technology into treatment sessions produces great results, ultimately helping more children and teens thrive. Our goal is always to see each child achieve more than they ever dreamed possible!"
