Community Partner Spotlight: Milestone Pediatric Therapy Services

Milestone Therapy Pediatric Services provides pediatric physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy for children across the Denver metro area in clinical and early intervention settings. Founded in 2003 by Terra Scott, Milestone has grown over the years to include a team of occupational, physical and speech therapists who help unique children master milestones while providing compassion toward all families.

In addition to clinical services, Milestone provides Early Intervention evaluations and ongoing Individualized Family Service Plans, which are family-centered and occur in the child’s natural environment. With the first three years of a child’s life being some of the most critical, Early Intervention services help a child to develop age-appropriate skills and teaches family members how to support the child’s development in important ways.

As part of their ongoing programming, Milestone offers summer groups and classes, including gymnastics, dance, motor group, sensory play and more. Each therapy group is offered in an eight week session, meeting once per week, for $240. We’ve included a their upcoming schedule below – registration ends May 14, so secure your child’s spot today!
