"Paige with TPP contracts with Missouri First Steps and was assigned to us since the moment Flynn was discharged from the NICU. She has been with Flynn since he was 3 weeks old! He was diagnosed with HIE and had extremely low muscle tone. Since working with Paige and doing tons of exercises within and outside of PT, he is thriving. I was so anxious about his development and she continued to assure in time, he would get there-and with rolling over, sitting up, crawling, walking, to running and jumping...he did just that! She ensured he had ankle braces and assistive equipment as needed too. She also wrote up progress reports for the neurologist at Children's Mercy so they had a good baseline at each of his follow-up clinics! Then there came a time where Flynn needed an increase in visits and she was able made it work in her schedule so it could happen. OT was also wonderful too! Shelby came up with creative ideas to help with his oral aversion and helped him be successful with eating! Our family is grateful for their services! We will miss them when he transitions out of the early intervention program (too soon)!! Thank you for all you have done for our sweet boy!"

"We had been going to TPP for going on two years and I have nothing but good memories of this place! The therapists there are so good with the children, give excellent and thorough advice on how to help your child at home and make the whole experience, both of the child and parent, one to remember! I would recommend TPP to anyone parent who is seeking quality therapy that has great results! Mallory will always have a special place in our hearts, as she gave our son the words he needed to make his voice heard."

"The Pediatric Place has been such a blessing for our son, Bryton, and family. The compassion, kindness, and love that every staff member demonstrates to the kids is truly remarkable. We never leave a session feeling disappointed or unloved. The staff works hard to ensure that all children are being met at their greatest need and feeling rewarded with their accomplishments. We are very blessed to have found The Pediatric Place for our son and would highly recommend them to others! Thank you Pediatric Place for everything you do for Bryton!"

"Mrs. Shield's is always so friendly with the students in our school. We have seen so many improvements with our kiddos that work with her! I would gladly recommend TPP to anyone based on my interactions with Mrs. Shields."
"My daughter Isabelle was diagnosed with autism at three years old, at that time she was non-verbal. Soon after she started in speech therapy with Carmen and remained in therapy there for years. In the beginning Isabelle would go two to three times a week, but Isabelle always looked forward to going due to the loving and fun atmosphere. Carmen was always so hard working, cheerful and welcoming. She connected with the children in a way I can’t explain. I remember being so worried for my child at that time- “will she ever talk?” “Will she be ok?” As the years passed Isabelle eventually graduated therapy and I can proudly say my daughter is almost 13 now and is thriving. She can talk and hold conversations perfectly and I owe it all to Carmen. My daughter would not be where she is today without that therapy. Myself and my entire family will forever be grateful for the services Isabelle received there."
