I’m so pleased to be welcoming Sky Bridge therapy as a new sponsor this month. If you’re looking for a caring, qualified speech therapist or OT provider near Tacoma, you’ll be as thrilled as I was to learn that there is a new option in Lakewood with openings right now!
If you’ve been reading this site for a while you know that one of my kiddos has been in speech therapy for a long time. If that sounds discouraging, I want to assure you that it’s been a huge help. We’ve also done OT and various kinds of tutoring, and while I don’t want to get into that much further, I will tell you from my momma’s heart that my one regret is that we didn’t do more sooner. Trust your instincts!
If you’ve already looked for therapy for your child you may have run into waiting lists or found yourself driving all over to get from one appointment to the next.
Wendy Cochran, an owner and clinic administrator at Sky Bridge Therapies, experienced this herself when she sought therapy for her two sons. She knew Pierce County families needed a better option. In her words:
“I knew I wanted to help families in obtaining their speech, occupational and feeding therapy in a less stressful environment. A place where therapists can work together to meet the needs of the child in a collaborative manner. Where kids can feel positive about themselves and walk out of our clinic feeling like they have accomplished something.”
Sky Bridge was founded with the belief that kids in Pierce County should be able to access state of the art therapy that addresses the needs of the whole child.
Their facility is 4,400 square feet of state-of-the-art awesomeness, including a treatment room dedicated to feeding therapy, a rock wall, and a fun and motivating environment including equipment from the, “King of swings.”
The facility is located just minutes from I-5 in Lakewood, just a short drive from Joint Base Lewis McChord and convenient to most all our South Sound readers!
