HHH Pediatric Therapy (Hands, Hooves and Hearts Therapeutic Services LLC) was started because the owner, Jenny, believes that each child has endless potential and she loves helping children and families create their best lives. When her daughter, Megan, was born with Down Syndrome, her whole world was briefly turned upside down.  Looking back, she wishes she had spent those initial scary days relishing in her beautiful daughter instead of worrying.   As time has gone on, she has learned that just because Megan’s journey may look slightly different than that of her sisters or peers at school, it is certainly no less exciting and beautiful.  The goal at HHH Pediatric Therapy is to help parents see the absolute best in their child and to help teach parents skills to help their child grow and develop.   Jenny firmly believes parents should feel hopeful and excited for their child’s future and the therapists at HHH Pediatric Therapy hope to be a small piece of their journey.
