News arrived in my inbox that Shanghai-based therapy center Olivia’s Place has very recently opened a Beijing branch called Eliott’s Corner.They will offer occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and educational psychology to both local and expatriate children.
This is great news for families with children who need expert pediatric therapy services. Until now, therapy services have been sparse and limited to Beijing’s larger hospitals and Care for Children (Beijing’s only dedicated special needs school). The arrival of Eliott’s Corner means that families have more care options, which is always a good thing.
And good news for downtowners: Eliott’s Corner is located in Liangma Qiao.
What I find interesting is that Olivia’s Place (and hopefully by extension Eliott’s Corner) seem to have a focus on affordable, accessible care. For parents of children with "significant therapy needs" who are unable to pay the cost of their child’s therapy, the Olivia’s Place Foundation can step in to cover some of the costs.
I hope to find out more from Eliott’s Corner founder Jacqueline Chen later this week. Stay tuned for more details!
