Hayward, Wisconsin—NorthLakes Community Clinic is pleased to announce that starting in mid-April, Pediatric Occupational and Speech Therapies will be available in the Hayward area. Until now, patients often had to travel far distances to receive this type of integrated treatment.
“We’ve been seeing a number of clients from the Hayward area in our Ashland clinic for quite some time,” says Angie Schoeppach, NorthLakes Community Clinic Therapies Director. “We know the distance creates an unnecessary burden for families and results in clients missing school. By expanding our services to Hayward, we can remove some of these barriers to care.”
Occupational and Speech therapies are a commonly needed service for children and teens. For example, speech therapy can work within a number of areas to enhance a child’s learning and development, but also to assist with things such as swallowing dysfunction and feeding impairments. Equally as important, occupational therapy can address everything from motor delays to attention span and regulating emotions.
The expansion was made in part due to the addition of Becky Payne, MAT-CCC/SLP, HPCS. Payne brings over 20-years of experience as a Speech Language Pathologist. We anticipate taking patients starting in mid-April. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please call us at (715) 634-2541.
