Menlo center offers multiple therapies

by Alison Myoraku

Menlo Park resident Abigail Robinson recently opened Accelerate Center, a multidisciplinary therapy center, on Menlo Avenue in Menlo Park.

The center offers occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, physical therapy, reading classes, and social skills workshops. Its clients range from infants to adults, said spokesperson Samantha Houston.

"We are also the only therapy center in Menlo Park of its kind in that we provide multiple therapies under one roof," she said.

Nine employees of Accelerate Center work in a 600-square-foot office at 644 Menlo Ave., Suite #100.

Abigail Robinson is the owner. The employees include clinical director Megan Cauthen, occupational therapists Dora Thalwitz and Myron Dang, speech-language pathologist Jenna Mendoca, speech therapist Maya Baluta, pediatric physical therapist Gina Calloni, behavior analyst Kirk Change, message therapist Liz Elms, and educational therapist Cathy Wilkins.

Accelerate Center is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
