About Us

The Ray and Kathy LaHood Center for Cerebral Palsy was established in 2010 to provide coordinated and comprehensive services for children with Cerebral Palsy and their families.

The point-of-entry for many families is the Cerebral Palsy Clinic.  The clinic team is comprised of a developmental pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, orthopedic surgeon, physical therapist, and case coordinator.  The clinic visit includes a medical examination, recommendations for interventions and medications, parent education, coordination of services, and follow-up communication with the child’s physicians, therapists and teachers as appropriate.

Our Mission
The mission of the Ray and Kathy LaHood Center for Cerebral Palsy is to provide a network of experts to meet the comprehensive needs of individuals living with Cerebral Palsy during their first 18 years of life and to contribute to the body of knowledge related to evaluation, diagnosis, and treatments for this population.

Our Vision
The Ray and Kathy LaHood Cerebral Palsy Center will be a highly-utilized community-based resource for diagnostic, treatment, clinical research, community education, and support for children with cerebral palsy and their families in Central Illinois.

The Ray and Kathy LaHood Center for Cerebral Palsy is located at 507 E. Armstrong Avenue in Peoria, Illinois within the Easter Seals building.
