Beyond Therapy Foundation

Our mission is to provide advocacy, facilitate independence in life, and connection to the community for children with disabilities and their families.

Our values are a definition of who we are...


Our Board of Directors includes special needs parents and grandparents.  They've been to countless IEP meetings, specialist appointments, and hospitalizations.  We're here to support your family and advocate for your child's needs during these difficult times.


Through our fundraising efforts, we hope to be able to provide various kinds of durable medical equipment to children with special needs.  These items may include bibs, adaptive utensils, bathroom renovations, ramps, wheelchairs, bath chairs, and other adaptive equipment as we are able.


We support families beyond the therapy session by hosting monthly social gatherings.  Our Beyond Therapy Play Days provide an accepting environment for children of all abilities to engage in unstructured play and make friends.  We also facilitate relationships between special needs parents so they can share experiences, resources, and guidance.

Our Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors were carefully selected because of their unique experiences of being special needs parents and grandparents.  Together they share expertise in the medical and legal fields, therapeutic interventions, prescribing adaptive equipment, and making creative adaptations.
