Washington Elks Therapy Program for Children

its commonly called the Tall Elks program.

The program is over 60 years old and has evolved into an integral, vital, and much-appreciated part of the statewide healthcare community. It provides home-based occupational or physical therapy for children with developmental delays or physical disabilities. Services are provided at no cost to the family served.

Any child in Washington State with an Occupational or Physical Therapy prescription for treatment and whose family lives within reach of our therapy team is eligible to be helped by Tall Elks Program. However, only those most critically in need can be accepted into the therapeutic program. While the children we serve range in age from birth to 21, preference is given to infants and young children who are medically fragile or who would otherwise go without services due to their family’s lack of resources, and to children who will experience deterioration in their status without therapy.

Eligibility for services does not require affiliation, membership, or association with the Elks, any of its members, or lodges.
