About ˈKrēdō Home Therapy

After first hand dealing with the struggles that come with searching for qualified therapists within the area, we knew that there were other parents and children that were enduring the same situation as us. Our company was created to address the unique difficulties found within pediatrics and to provide hope to families that feel helpless after other attempts have failed or not provided the benefit sought.  We wanted to make the process easier for families and to include parents as much as possible in the evaluation, creation, development process and ongoing support for the children we provide service to. We found this to be very challenging with other companies and believe that it is critical for the success of our children in order for them to flourish and overcome the difficulties they face.
