Theraplay, Inc., a leading provider of pediatric occupational, physical, speech and feeding therapy, headquartered in West Chester, Pennsylvania, has opened their eleventh outpatient center in Newark, DE. This marks Theraplay’s first outpatient location in Delaware, following the lead of the home and school services they provide throughout the tri-state area.

After opening their Landenberg, PA center in 2014, the need for additional pediatric therapy services for patients in the state of Delaware became apparent. The opening of this center at 630 Churchmans Road in Newark brings over 4,000 square feet of treatment space for patients of all ages and skill sets to be seen, including rooms for feeding therapy and sensory processing sessions, an open gym, and orthopedic and concussion rehabilitation areas for older patients.

Center Manager Kelly Rodden, MS, OTR/L is excited and proud of the growth Theraplay is making in Delaware. “I am so excited that we now have the space to better serve our Delaware families. We have seen a growing need for therapy in this area and it is wonderful that Theraplay is able to meet the needs of patients who will benefit from our services!”
