FLINT TWP. — With the addition of speech and language pathologist Rebecca Hughes and occupational therapist Dana Gepfrey, Max Well Therapy, LLC, y is now fully equipped to provide treatment for any pediatric condition requiring therapy.
Patients are being accepted now at Max Well’s Clinic, 1397 S. Linden Road, a therapy resource for children with various developmental disorders including autism spectrum disorders, speech delay, developmental delay and cerebral palsy.
Services are offered to parents concerned about their child’s development or who has a child having trouble with speech or motor coordination or has been diagnosed with autism or Asperger’s syndrome.
With physical, occupational and speech therapy, Max Well specializes in helping each child reach their maximum potential.
Jill Maxwell, physical therapist and owner, knows firsthand about the importance of quality pediatric care.
“As a parent of a son on the autism spectrum, I have realized personally and professionally the need for more options in the Flint area for pediatric therapy,” she said. “The incidence of children on the autism spectrum has dramatically increased to 1 in 88. These children and their parents need help thus we have developed a pediatric program to meet their needs.”
Maxwell’s son Anthony, now 22, is a perfect success story for children on the spectrum. As a senior on the Grand Blanc swim team, Anthony was one of the top swimmers and accompanied the team to the state competition. He is now excelling in his college courses and is a chess instructor at Max Well, according to a press release.
