Cheryl decided on a profession in physical therapy after volunteering in the physical therapy department at the UW hospital in Madison, Wisconsin during her middle school years, and has never looked back. Her initial clinical work included acute care and rehab hospitals as well as nursing homes. After receiving her pediatric NDT (Neuro-Developmental Treatment) certification, Cheryl decided to specialize in working with young children and infants with neurological and developmental disorders. She later received further specialization in the NDT approach to treating babies and continued to work with infants and young children with a wide variety of diagnoses in public school settings, Parent-Infant and Early Childhood programs, outpatient clinics, and the NICU. Cheryl owned her own pediatric therapy clinic in McAllen, Texas for 22 years during which time she provided follow-up screenings and treatment services to graduates of the NICU there as well as treatment services to children with torticollis, Erb’s palsy, orthopedic, developmental, and neurological disorders. She has also worked with children with sensory integrative disorders. Cheryl and her husband moved to the Austin area in the fall of 2010 to be closer to their grown children and the grand children that have come along the last several years. She began working at Kidtherapy in the fall of 2011. Cheryl continues to enjoy working with children and their families to assist children in developing their motor skills to their fullest potential. She believes that early intervention and parental involvement have proven to have the greatest positive impact on a young child’s development and has committed her professional practice to that ideology.
