New Pediatric Therapy Program is Making a Difference in Children’s Lives

Ascension St. Vincent Pediatric Therapy Program is Making a Difference 
Ascension St.Vincent Evansville recently unveiled a new, expanded Pediatric Therapy program offering outpatient physical, occupational, and speech therapy services. The newly renovated kid-friendly space is located within the Center for Children and adjacent to the Patricia Browning Stone Sensory Playground. Ascension St. Vincent Evansville Foundation was proud to support this important project for our children and families.
Taylor Teppen’s son, Mitchell, has greatly benefitted from the care he has received through the program. She states, “Our experience with the Pediatric Therapy Program has been nothing short of exceptional. My son, Mitchell, started physical therapy treatments for severe Torticollis when he was just 1 month old. After only 2 months with our therapist, Nicolette, I’ve seen a complete transformation. Mitchell regained full neck mobility and has easily met all developmental milestones along the way. Not only has Nicolette provided important hands-on treatment for Mitchell during his appointments, but she also has given me the tools and confidence I need to continue his therapy exercises at home.”
Nicolette Juncker, Pediatric Therapist, discusses the need for such a program in our community: “…it is a privilege to be able to give back and provide our clients with these much-needed services. Therapy significantly impacts both the child and caregiver’s daily lives, so being another resource for families here in the Tri-state is crucial to allow kids to get the help both when and how they need it. …I feel very blessed to be able to help kiddos of all ages in our community.”
