Kids Launch provides home-based occupational, physical, or speech therapy to children, ages birth to seven years of age who show a medical necessity for these services.  We won’t discharge on the day they turn seven but work to transition them to other services by their eighth birthday.

Services are provided in a home and/or community setting. 

Your family deserves the very best care possible.  UTMB values you and your child, pledging to help you find the right service alternatives for your needs.

Mission & Vision

UTMB Kids Launch will provide high quality therapeutic services to children in their natural environment delivered with compassion, reliability and integrity. We aspire to be the pediatric therapeutic service of choice for parents, physicians and the Gulf Coast community by providing services that go above and beyond expectations.
