Helping Families Build the Foundation for the Future

"I have a child with special needs but don’t know who to turn to with my questions or where to go to get help."

The stigma commonly attached to the label “special needs” seems to focus more on what a child can’t do rather than what they can do. Time and again, families who have a child with special needs have been given a diagnosis for their child and little else. With no answers about how to address the issues attached to the diagnosis, parents are left feeling overwhelmed and confused. Cornerstone Pediatric Center is focused not only on addressing the needs of your child but also addressing the needs of your family. We value your family’s input and use that information to design comprehensive treatment strategies to address all of your concerns.

Who We Are:

Cornerstone Pediatric Center is a specialized facility created to serve families who have children with special needs. Our therapists focus on Sensory Integration as our core treatment strategy. We use this treatment strategy to treat the child not just the diagnosis. The therapies we offer are Occupational Therapy (including hippotherapy and animal assisted therapy), Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy and Vision Therapy. We offer a family oriented environment where parents, caregivers, and teachers are an integral part of the child's team. Our therapists provide intensive treatment in the sensory gyms using protocols and strategies from evidence-based research to facilitate progress not just treatment. We focus on teaching parents techniques that they can carry over into daily routines for organization and skill development throughout the day. Cornerstone Pediatric Center strives to improve happiness, quality of life, and self confidence for all of our kids as well as their families. Our main focus is helping families take the first steps to building a solid foundation for the future.

"Isn’t all therapy the same? We’ve been seeing the same therapists for years and haven’t made much progress. What’s so different about Cornerstone Pediatric Center?"

What Makes Cornerstone Different?

All therapy is not the same. Our goal is not to see your child for years. If we’re treating your child for years with no noticeable progress then we aren’t doing our job. Our therapists want to facilitate as much progress as they can to enable your child and your family to function as independently as possible. Cornerstone Pediatric Center is the only facility in West Virginia specializing in treatment using Sensory Integration and Hippotherapy. These are two of the most innovative treatment techniques offered anywhere.

Some of the unique features that Cornerstone Pediatric Center offers are:

  • Multi-disciplinary (team) Approach: Our therapists work together with your family as part of a team to develop successful strategies that encourage greater independence and participation in play, school, and daily life skills.
  • Home Programming: Our therapists provide your family with techniques and strategies that can be implemented into your child’s daily routine to maximize progress and carryover of skills. Our therapists provide the intensity in the clinic and they teach your family how to increase the frequency at home making every clinic session as productive as possible.
  • Innovative Treatment Techniques: Based on current research, our therapists incorporate positive components of traditional therapy methods with innovative and creative treatment techniques and equipment like our custom sensory gym and hippotherapy.
