About Us

Mission Statement:

The Mission of Kids on the Go is to address Individualized Education Plan goals of special needs children that were established at the end of the school year and to maintain their current skills during the summer.

Description of Service:

Kids on the Go is providing 13 years this summer of service as a nonprofit pediatric program designed to provide special needs children with physical, occupational, and speech therapy during the summer months. We service the metro Detroit area and are affiliated with St. John Community Health. A program like this is rarely a covered medical benefit and often too costly for private payment ($90 for every 15 minutes of therapy). We provide therapy up to two times a week at no cost to the children's family. We are supported by local businesses, corporations, charitable organizations, and private donations.
