About Hi-Ability Therapy Services
We help patients on their journeys to better mobility, communication and socialization. We’re located just around the corner on Ann Storck Center’s campus in Fort Lauderdale. Our team has years of experience working with children and adults with a range of developmental disabilities at Ann Storck Center, and we’re proud to offer our expanded services in a collaborative clinic setting.
We use evidence-based therapeutic practices to help meet your child’s needs, and we strive to provide the highest quality services to achieve their greatest potential in all facets of daily and social living.
With the therapy services my son has received, he has turned into a very cheerful little boy who is now able to make phrases he couldn't use before and he is less afraid to interact with others. Miracles do happen and they happened to my son at Ann Storck Center.
Our team consists of highly skilled professionals in speech, occupational and physical therapy. We offer a unique collaborative therapy model in which experts in their respective fields work as a team with your family to develop a comprehensive and individualized therapeutic plan. This individualized therapy plan will support the social, communication and behavioral challenges that may face with your child.
Once we begin working with your child, we continuously monitor and assess his or her progress on therapy goals to ensure these goals are always tailored to meet the current needs. Your family is the most important piece of our therapy team – we provide ongoing coaching, teaching, and updates to make sure you have the tools needed to support your child’s development.
