Detroit, MI (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
The Detroit Institute for Children (DIC), Southeast Michigan’s leading nonprofit provider of therapy for children with special needs, today announced it has opened a new location in Southfield.
The Southfield campus joins the DIC’s Detroit, Walled Lake (Abilities Center) and St. Clair Shores (Pediatric Potentials) locations in offering coordinated occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech language pathology for children and young adults with physical, neurological or developmental disabilities. The focus of all DIC treatment is on strengthening its patients’ potential for independent functioning.
“We welcome new and existing patients to our easy-to-access Southfield campus,” said DIC President and CEO Mark Cleary. “We believe that this expansion will allow us to help even more children maximize their abilities.”
“Unlike many local facilities that offer similar services, we don’t have lengthy waiting lists in Southfield or at our other locations,” continued Cleary. “This means we are able to see patients for assessments and initial visits immediately – providing the early interventions that make so much of a difference in the lives of children with special needs.”
The DIC’s new location is at 18300 12 Mile Road just west of Southfield Rd and a mile north of I696.
