Great Feedback from Great Families

Attending the feeding clinic at BDI was a life changing experience. Having both a specialized speech/feeding therapist and occupational therapist working together to observe and assess my child was key in pinpointing the underlying issues we needed to address. The clinic resulted in a thorough assessment including any further evaluations needed covering a wide spectrum of possible problems and solutions. Per my experience at the clinic we've chosen BDI as our therapy home and we could not be happier with our child's progress and overall experience. The feeding clinic changed my life, and I know the services my child is receiving at BDI are forever changing his."

    review rating 5  My son has been going to BDI since he was one year old. He took his very first steps there and has so many "firsts" thanks to the wonderful therapists who work tirelessly to help him meet milestones. I truly attribute so much of his recovery to the team here! We all are so grateful for BDI!
