Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapies — all of these types of therapies provide exponential benefits for people impacted by movement disorders. This benefit is often underutilized and we never want you to leave benefits on the table. Each session includes a brief talk by a speech, occupational, or physical therapist discussing an aspect of the therapy and potential benefits. After the talk, the therapist will answer questions and facilitate a conversation for attendees to share tips and tools. Join us for a Therapy Break™ on the third Wednesday of each month at 4:30 PM PST.
