At Children's Therapy, we provide inpatient and outpatient treatment in occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), speech and language therapy, social and nutritional services, and family resource coordination.

Exercises include large and small muscle groups, sensorimotor activities, play, technology, self-care practices, feeding activities, and the design and fitting of orthotic devices.
Children's Therapy also participates with Valley Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to offer evaluation, treatment, and followup for premature and full-term infants experiencing developmental and/or feeding problems.
Special programs offered by Children's Therapy include Feeding Therapy and Orthopedic Therapy

Join Us For Weekly Art Activities!
These art activities are not only fun, but offer a mix of sensory experiences, helping children learn and grow. These group sessions may also help children expand social skills, express emotions, learn to follow step-by-step activities, and improve coping skills.
For everyone’s safety, children must have a parent/caregiver stay with them during the activity. Everyone will need to wear a mask while in the clinic and during the art activity.
Free Weekly Art Activities at Children's Therapy Mondays from 12 - 1 pm. No registration required.
Please see VMC CT Art Activity Flyer for more information.

Let Amazon and Fred Meyer to Make a Donation to VIA in Your Name
When you shop Fred Meyer or Amazon.com, your spending can benefit patients in South King County through Valley Medical Center’s Volunteers in Action. VIA is a valuable financial contributor to Valley, supporting patients and employees, including:
- Providing low-income families in our district Fred Meyer gift cards so they can purchase groceries for their holiday meals or buy gifts for their children
- Sponsoring the NICU Family Thanksgiving dinner
- Purchasing vans for VMC's free shuttle service
- Funding special purchases around Valley, like the DAISY display case in the hospital main lobby
- Funding scholarships for Valley employees to further their professional development
Via makes this possible through the money it raises through the gift and flower shop, special vendor sales and now Fred Meyer’s Community Rewards and AmazonSmile.
How Can You Sign Up to have Fred Meyer Donate to VIA?
You can support VIA just by shopping at Fred Meyer with your Rewards Card. The donation VIA will receive is related to how many customers select VIA as their Community Rewards organization and how much they shop.
Simply link your Rewards Card to VIA by clicking this link and filling out the online form. Whenever you use your Rewards Card when shopping at Freddy’s, you will be helping VIA earn a donation from Fred Meyer. If you do not have a Rewards Card, you can sign up for one for free at the Customer Service Desk of any Fred Meyer store.
What is AmazonSmile?
When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization.
