Get to Know us and Our Philosophy
Two childhood friends reunited, both full of dreams, sharing a mutual desire to help children with special needs, giving them dedication and love in every step of their recovery and development. Together we created Clever Kids, a multidisciplinary therapy center, integrating multiple therapies that include occupational, physical, language and communication, as well as behavioral. We also added behavioral therapy, and educational services. At the beginning we had the desire to provide an integral center for the complete development of the children for which we added art, dance, and music therapy to optimize the progress of each child, the dream and desire of each parent is ours. We take the rehabilitation of each child as a personal goal, putting effort day by day so that their dreams are also ours, and their achievements are our reward.
