Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City’s The Children’s SPOT

Established in 1980 at Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City, the Children’s SPOT (Speech, Physical, and Occupational Therapy) provides early and intensive rehabilitative therapy to infants and preschool-aged children. Research shows treatment at this early age is best. 

Services are provided through programs specifically designed to meet the needs of young children with disabilities and developmental delays. Children served have a wide variety of diagnoses, including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, premature birth, chromosomal disorders, and other developmental delays. 

Whatever a referral’s reason, families find a dedicated staff of therapists working toward one goal—to help children reach their highest level of functional ability and success in the environments where they live, learn, and play.
