Thriving with Cerebral Palsy: Liam's Story

Watching 7-year-old Liam R. of Mountain Top climb a rock wall in the pediatric therapy gym at Allied Services Rehab Hospital in Wilkes-Barre, you would never know that just a few years ago, doctors weren't even sure if he would ever be able to walk, let alone climb.

"They (doctors) didn't think he would ever walk or talk - the picture they painted was very bleak. They thought he would be wheelchair-bound for life and they were unsure where his cognitive ability would lie," said his mother, Kristen.

Shortly after birth, Liam suffered a stroke that affected his right side and gave him Cerebral Palsy (CP). His family chose Allied Services for Liam's physical therapy. Watch and learn how the therapy team at Allied Services made an impact in Liam's life.

John P. Moses Esq. Pediatric Rehab Centers

Introducing Allied Services' John P. Moses Esq. Pediatric Rehab Centers; a partnership with AllOne Foundation & Charities. For more than four decades, the Pediatric Program has provided comprehensive evaluations and individualized treatment plans to children of all abilities and diagnoses.

Each year, Allied Services provides:

  • 29,784 pediatric therapy appointments.
  • 8,524 hours of treatment to children on Medical Assistance.
  • Services for 1,200 children in the Wyoming Valley.

Each year, the Pediatric Program in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre provides life-changing care to children, many of whom are underinsured or uninsured. Sustaining costly services and ensuring access to care for children in our area has become increasingly challenging due in part to escalating healthcare expenses and restrictive reimbursement rates. The heavy annual expenses incurred by the program place these vital pediatric services at risk.

Now, with the help of AllOne Foundation & Charities and YOU, we're raising funds to sustain this vital program for children with disabilities, life-changing injuries, and chronic illnesses.

We need YOUR help. Now and in the coming years, we need the help of individuals, community groups, and businesses to ensure that the specialized rehab services found only at Allied Services are here when children and their families need them.

  • Sustain specialized rehab programs for children with disabilities in the Wyoming Valley.
