Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies sees every day the impact of raising a child with special needs. We see that it is hard emotionally, difficult financially and often difficult on family dynamics. We seek to serve families in this journey by providing excellent services for all families regardless of their ability to pay. We provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, mental health therapy, speech therapy and naturopathic care and we seek out the most vulnerable families. Through our services we address the physical, emotional and financial difficulties of being a child with a disability and of raising a child with a disability.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through our services Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies is working toward changing the lives of children, their families, their communities and society as a whole, one child at at time. By providing high quality services that are available for all children and families we are creating equity for all the families we serve. Through this equity we see improvements in the lives of children, in their family life and eventually in society as a whole.

Research is clear that stronger individuals create stronger families and stronger families create stronger communities. We aim to strengthen families through our services.

Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies provides direct services to combat the ravages of childhood disability and special needs. By providing physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy we are helping children to reach their full potential we are impacting their lives. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Through out mental health program we are addressing stressors, building parenting skills, strengthening families and making lasting changes in the lives of our clients. But we haven't stopped there. By adding a medical program, staffed by Naturopathic Doctors, we are offering care coordination in addition to expanded medical services.

We will continue to offer these services for families in need and will continue to expand to fill gaps in services. It is our mission to serve this population and through our core values of always serving vulnerable families and filling the gaps in services we will help to create stronger children, stronger adolescents, stronger families, and stronger communities.

Neurotherapeutic Pediatric has 7 clinics in the greater Portland area and one in Medford. We have 101 staff members. We have received commitments for almost $500K in grants in the last 2 years. We have been serving the community for 38 years. Our management team has an average of 15 years with the clinic. We know how to start programs, grow programs and to sustain programs. We have a proven track record and the capability to continue to serve our community.

Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies has grown from one site providing 135 client visits per month in one site to providing over 2,600 client visits per month in 7 sites in the Portland Area and 1 site in Medford, Oregon at Medford Children's Therapies. We have gone from just providing physical and occupational therapy services to providing physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, mental health therapy, and Medical Services including Naturopathic Care. We have honored our core value of never closing the doors on kids on Oregon Health Plan (OHP). OHP reimburses less than it costs for us to provide our services so it takes some creative work and fundraising in order to not limit services for kids on OHP.

We continue to stand by our core values, expanded services, and multiple locations to fill gaps in services, and have remained financially viable while doing so. We have secured significant grant funding for program development and are recognized as a vital provider in the community. We have accomplished so much! What is next is to be open to areas of need and figuring out how to meet those needs.
