Great Feedback from Great Families

My son Jayden is 11 and has been coming to BDI for the past 4 years. BDI has become family in the way they treat my son. I truly feel deep in my heart if it wasn’t for his PT my son wouldn’t be walking the way he is today. BDI hires only the BEST. Every child here is treated with respect and love and each parent is respected and appreciated for their role in their child’s treatment plan."

    review rating 5  Highly recommend the infant classes at BDI! The therapists are so knowledgeable and welcoming and as a new mom, I really appreciated having professionals guide me through exercises and problem solving. The cost is definitely manageable and it is a great way to meet other parents.
