Lebanon's Dynamic Therapy Center has issued an invitation to the community for its upcoming groundbreaking celebration on Thursday, August 18 at 6:30 p.m. at 368 Quarry Loop Road.
Dynamic Therapy Center was established in 2005 by co-owners Karyn Kurth and Michelle Hill, both of whom bring over 25 years of experience in their respective fields of physical therapy and occupational therapy.
"This building is the result of years of wishing and dreaming, hoping for a place that better meets the needs of the families and community we serve," Kurth said. "A building designed by therapists and with input from our families, with space for creative and engaging treatment. I'm excited that part of the new building will have a mock apartment for teaching independent living skills in a realistic setting.
"And while imagining the exterior, I envision an area where gardening and sports are accessible to our special kids. There are so many things on my personal wish list, many of which are soon to be a reality. Our staff and families of our clients have also expressed their ideas and wishes, so this dream building, like the therapies we provide, is a joint effort."
Hill added, "We have been blessed to have outgrown each of the five different locations we have been in for the past 10 years and are looking forward to our final home."
Dynamic's mission is to provide a comprehensive program of services to meet each child's developmental needs. They provide both traditional and non-traditional therapy services by utilizing experienced pediatric specialists in a variety of fields. Their team of 24 therapists strives to be leaders in the practice and advancement of pediatric therapies by combining family centered patient care, high quality professional competencies and innovative evidence-based practice.
In addition to occupational therapy, speech therapy and physical therapy, they also offer academic enhancement programs including individual and small group tutoring, summer mini-camps and a variety of other groups year-round concentrating on specific areas of development such as social skills and reading skills.
Parent Robyn Schueler said, "I am excited about the home areas where the children can learn activities of daily living like dressing, showering, meal preparation and cooking." Parent Kristin Kujda added her children were excited about the outdoor space and gardening opportunities.
Officials with the center thanked Stockton Building Corporation, The Hall Group, Dean Design Group and Pinnacle Financial Partners for their support of the project. To learn more, visit www.DynamicTherapyCenter.com.
