North Charleston, SC (March 28, 2019) – Expanding opportunities for children with special needs is one of the goals of Trident Medical Center’s Pediatric Therapy program. Starting April 6 the hospital will hold three creative dance classes for children with special needs. The dates are April 6, 13 and 27. The class size is limited to 10 children per class and appropriate for children ages 5 – 12 years of age. Children must be able to follow simple instructions; an adult must accompany the child.

Family Medicine physician Corey Meader, MD, Trident Family Health, says, “Our pediatric therapists do a wonderful job working with children who have developmental delays. They are experienced and work hard to develop plans that are specific to each child in order to help them reach their maximal individualized abilities.”

Classes cost $10 each. Payment can be made in cash or check made payable to Trident Medical Center. Classes will be held at Trident Medical Center Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, Medical Arts Building, Suite 103, 9313 Medical Plaza Drive, North Charleston, SC 29406.
