St Croix Therapy, Inc., formerly known as Special Children Center, has been actively serving families who have children with special needs since 1986. We mainly treat children with diverse needs using traditional and innovative physical, occupational and speech/language therapies on land and in the water.

Our warm water therapy pool and our gym, designed for sensory play, are used to meet individual goals while incorporating social and emotional interactions. Physical, Occupational and Speech-Language therapists work closely with one another so they are able to learn from each other to best treat the needs of the whole person.

In 2009, St Croix Therapy, Inc. became a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and expanded services to include adults. As a non-profit organization, we are committed to re-investing in our clients, our facility and the communities we serve. In addition to providing treatment that works, our therapists are dedicated to mentoring future professionals. Whether a person comes in to learn about healthcare career options or a student completing his/her degree comes to gain a clinical internship experience, we welcome those who want to learn and serve.

We work as a team. Together we are “Reaching Higher Potential and Creating New Possibilities” for clients of all ages and abilities. 

To find out more about St Croix Therapy, call (715) 386-2128 and visit the center online.
