Our History



Kidworks opened in the fall of 2006.  I am the mom of twin boys with special needs.  When the boys were young, I was very frustrated with the lack of quality services available for children once they turned three and were out of the First Steps Program.  There were exciting and new approaches being developed which were not available in this area.  I spent years in waiting rooms with other moms frustrated about not being able to find what we needed.  Many families I knew were moving out of the area to find those essential services.  I had a friend who was a very talented therapist and also a mom of kids with special needs.  We decided to give it a go and see if we could create a new resource.  

We wanted Kidworks to always be sensitive to the needs of its families and also the needs of its talented therapists.  We also wanted a warm and comfortable environment where our clients would feel welcome and supported.  Early on I saw the great difficulty funding treatment can be for some families and we created the Kidfunds scholarship program to assist with that need. 

I love meeting families and assisting finding whatever resources they may need.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a suggestion for me.  I have walked in your shoes, and I find nothing more rewarding than assisting others down the road I have traveled.
