Amarillo’s Turn Center is offering summer physical therapy programs for children to help them stay active all year long.

The program helps kids be more independent through programs including a sports skills camp, and a cooking skills group. 

These programs do not require a referral from a pediatrician.

The Turn Center serves children with more than 340 unique disorders and delays at their facilities, and encourages kids to be active during the summer months so they do not fall behind.

TTC officials say it’s highly important that concerns be addressed early, because it’s easier to bring the child up to speed with his or her peers, and it helps to build a lifelong foundation.
