Raising Children
to Their Highest Potential

At Children's Therapy Corner, we approach your child's therapy as a comprehensive, or holistic, endeavor. We offer a variety of therapy options and encourage collaboration among therapists and with parents for maximum benefit. Whether your child needs a combination of services or just one, we're equipped with the tools, techniques and experience to offer the best therapy for Michigan's children.


Even since the day we thought about building, it was all about the kids. Every child was given a hard hat and shovel to break ground for their new building when our Midland facility was built in 2001.

Director's Corner

JanetPortraitTo ‘see’ things differently.
To take risks.
To believe when all others question and doubt.
To dream and expect the unexpected.
Do you all realize that you are heroes?

One of the greatest benefits of being at Children’s Therapy Corner is being part of your lives and having the opportunity to talk to you, the families. You encourage us to go beyond, to search for new and different answers, new methods to help your children. To think out of the box!

As therapists, we may be the ones who spent some specialized time in universities to help your children, but you are the professionals who live the daily life and know what we can only assume. It is in partnership that we gain so much more TOGETHER.

We anticipate that this partnership will enhance your child’s development. To FOCUS on a dream, PLAN the route (with detours expected), and REACH a destiny together with support and awareness of the community in which you live. It may be a challenging dream, but with a vision and determination based on a great cause: Oh, the Places We’ll Go!
