What’s New

MyLeftFootChildren’sTherapyisstillgrowing!

My Left Foot children’s Therapy is excited to officially announce the expansion and complete remodel of our Henderson clinic, located at 171 S. Gibson Dr. Our expansion gave us a larger waiting room for our parents, 2 additional treatment rooms for our patients, a nice break-room for our therapists, a larger office for our receptionists, a brighter pool for our swimmers, a trampoline for more fun, and a gym for more gross motor activities like scooter boarding and obstacle courses!

Free Infant, Child, and Adult CPR Class for My Left Foot Children’s Therapy Employees!

On January 21st and 22’, we held an American Heart Association Infant, Child, and Adult CPR and Lifesaving Class (with AED instruction for heart emergencies), for the staff at My Left Foot Children’s Therapy. Although we have always required all of our therapists to be certified in Advanced Lifesaving and CPR, this year we decided to hold the course ourselves, and pay for it ourselves, so that all of our therapists, as well as our management and supervisory administrative staff could be certified/re-certified easily, in the comfort of our clinic, and in the company of their friends and fellow co-workers, who might one-day be their fellow life-savers. Practicing these lifesaving techniques as a team, we feel, will allow our staff to jump into action faster and work better as a team, if a life-threatening crisis should ever arise at one of our clinics. Everyone passed with flying colors, and we feel confident that we can handle any situation that comes our way, smoothly and successfully! We will continue to hold free classes for our employees every few months!

Take a peek inside our BEAUTIFUL new clinic!

When we decided to build an amazing new clinic from the ground-up, we had 4 main goals:1) To make sure that our therapists and our patients have all of the tools and equipment they need, so that they will be able to make the most progress possible.2.) To provide a therapeutic environment that supports our patients’ needs, while also making therapy fun!3.) To provide an enjoyable and stress-free environment for the families of our patients, with easy parking and a very large waiting room that has plenty to keep the kids occupied and having fun, so that mom and dad can get a little down-time.4.) Lastly, to provide an enjoyable and relaxing work environment for our 80+ full-time employees, with vibrant colors, great art, lots of open spaces, two beautiful kitchens, lots of sunlight, and an abundance of positive energy!

We are all moved into our new, beautiful, huge, main clinic at 2012 S. Jones Blvd!

We have to give a huge shout-out to our amazing administrative staff (pictured below) who moved an entire clinic (consisting of the massive amount of therapy equipment of our 40 therapists, and the office supplies, computers, and desks of our 40 administrative employees), into a brand new building in a total of 6 hours!!!! How is that possible? It’s possible because our administrative staff, who are the behind-the-scenes HEROS of My Left Foot Children’s Therapy, are the most positive, enthusiastic, and hard-working administrative staff this side of the Mississippi!

Thanks to all of our administrative employees for making our big move such a fun, exciting, and successful project!

Parents’ Night Out!

Parents’ Night Out! is a wonderful opportunity to allow your child to experience some independence away from mom and dad, and improve your child’s self-esteem and self-confidence, in a safe and understanding environment, that your child is already familiar with, and comfortable in. This is a fantastic opportunity to let your child spread his/her wings (under the watchful eyes and well-trained staff of My Left Foot Children’s Therapy)! Who else knows your child better? Additionally, you get some time to spread YOUR wings!

Parents’ Night Out! is held every Saturday evening from 5:30-8:30 pm at My Left Foot Children’s Therapy. Children will improve their social skills, increase their interpersonal communication skills, learn good sportsmanship, and make great friends who will accept them just the way they are! Different activities will be planned by our Recreation Therapist weekly. The cost of Parents’ Night Out is$9.00 per hour, or $25.00 for the full 3 hours. Clients of My Left Foot Children’s Therapy, as well as their friends and siblings are welcome to join the fun!

Announcing the Grand Opening
of our Henderson Clinic and Indoor Pool
for Year-Round Aquatic Therapy!

Posted January 5, 2012

We are so pleased to announce that we will be opening a Henderson Left Foot Children’s Therapy, on February 29th, 2012. Our beautiful new Henderson Clinic will provide OT, PT, ST, ABA, and Aquatic Therapy. It will be open 12 hours-a-day and on weekends, just like our main facility. We are so proud that we are now able to give our patients two things that we know are so desperately needed: 1.) the best pediatric therapists providing the best pediatric therapy, now much closer to home, in Henderson, and 2.) Year-round aquatic therapy in a professional and fun environment! For the past 8 years, we have been so inspired and impressed by so many parents bringing their children all the way from Henderson and Boulder City to our main facility on Jones Blvd. Their dedication and commitment to their children’s therapy has been motivating. Knowing that they are spending hours on buses, or driving through stressful traffic, in order to get their kids the best therapy available in Las Vegas, has really inspired us to do our part to make their lives easier. We are so pleased to help those parents provide their kids with our high quality of care in their own, “Neck of the woods!” I truly believe that we have the most devoted parents at My Left Foot Children’s Therapy! Additionally, we have been aware of the fact that there is no place for children in the Las Vegas Valley to receive professional year-round aquatic therapy by licensed Physical and Occupational Therapists. The children in Las Vegas deserve the same quality aquatic therapy that children in other parts of the country receive, so about a year ago, we started the daunting process of designing and building a new facility with an indoor swimming pool specifically for that purpose. Soon after, we started interviewing and hiring experienced aquatic therapists to provide this service to our patients. We are very pleased to be able to offer this service to our patients and we can’t wait to see the kids splashing, laughing, and simply having a blast in that pool!

Here We Grow Again!

Posted September 28, 2011

It’s hard to believe, but we’re doing it again! We are very proud to officially announce that we are currently in the process of increasing the size of our clinic once again! We are doubling the size of our waiting room, adding a second kitchen area for feeding therapy, adding three more treatment rooms, and a third restroom. We know how busy our waiting room has become, and it is very important to us that the families of our patients are comfortable and can relax while waiting for their children. As parents ourselves, we know how important it is to grab a little down-time whenever we can! We hope that our larger waiting room will be enjoyed by all of you – our wonderful parents! You all work so hard to get your children to their therapy, once you’re here you deserve a little rest!

Construction is going on right now, very quietly and without any disruptions (due to our very good sound-proofing), next-door, and should be finished by October 25th.

Therapeutic Listening Program

and Lending Library Launched!

Posted September 20, 2011

Last month we went full force with the implementation of our Therapeutic Listening Program, and have already seen the wonderful effect that it has had on so many of our patients! Both therapists and parents are very pleased with the results.

Therapeutic Listening is an auditory intervention that uses the organized sound patterns in therapeutically-specific music, to affect all levels of the nervous system. It is an extension of Sensory Integration, specifically affecting the auditory and vestibular senses, which in turn impact a person’s attention, communication, behavior, social skills, motor control, balance, ability to process and retain information accurately, and overall success in life!

Children with Auditory Processing Disorder, ADD, AHD, Autism, Social and Emotional Issues, Behavioral Problems, Cognitive Impairments, Developmental Delays, Motor Delays, Clumsiness, Poor School Performance, Poor Handwriting, and many other issues, have had positive results with the Therapeutic Listening Program.

It is a very exciting program and we are proud to be able to offer it to the patients of My Left Foot Children’s Therapy!
