About Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies:

As a non-profit organization, the mission of Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies is two-fold. First is to involve, in a meaningful way, children with cerebral palsy and other developmental needs and members of their families in the mainstream of society, thus ensuring their abilities to assume rights as equal citizens. Second is to ensure their ability to receive services as needed to minimize the effects of their disability.

For nearly 60 years, Kids Center has served children with special needs and their families, providing world-class care close to home. Each week, 600-700 children with developmental disabilities and delays receive physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy services from highly trained and experienced professionals at Kids Center. Currently there are more than 1,200 children and teens—from birth to age 21—in active care at Kids Center.

We have two campus locations in Louisville, KY. Central Campus is located at 982 Eastern Parkway and East Campus is located at 9810 Bluegrass Parkway.
