Please forward this email to your friends to let them know about Kid's Creek and the upcoming events we have scheduled. We always have room for more children in the Kid's Creek family!

We Love Referrals!
Do you know a child who needs our help? Let their parents know that we offer FREE CONSULTATIONS and SCREENINGS. Many people are looking for a speech, occupational, or physical therapist for their child, and want to find a place that not only produces results, but values both the child and his/her family.
To refer a friend, have them mention your name and we'll take care of the rest. Plus, you will receive a Starbucks gift card for our refer-a-friend award program!
