Buchanan County Health Center Now Offering Pediatric Occupational Therapy
Buchanan County Health Center is expanding its Therapy and Rehabilitation Department by offering pediatric occupational therapy. A unique service offered locally, this therapy through play approach provides children and their families with the tools to improve their cognitive, physical, sensory and motor skills, and to enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment regardless of disability or developmental delay.
