for your child.

Your search ends here.
“I remember searching for help for my child as we navigated life with our unique needs. I longed for a place where I felt I was listened to and respected as a parent, instead of being seen as a patient or chart number. I wanted support in a small, welcoming and hopeful place.” - Sheryl LeVota, Owner of Beyond Function

Beyond Function, LLC is an outpatient pediatric therapy clinic based in the Kansas City area created to help children reach their full potential. We are small and welcoming, holistic and hopeful. We serve children from birth to 18 in the Kansas City area. We accept most insurance programs including Kansas Medicaid. The owner, Sheryl LeVota, has been serving children and families in Kansas City since 2002.

Our Mission:

  • Every family has a unique story and journey, and we will take the time to listen.
  • Every child has a critically important reason for being on this Earth, and we will point out their potential.

An Integrated Approach:

At Beyond Function, we embrace an integrative approach to our service offerings. We believe in the concept of treating the “whole child” and can tailor a plan to fit your needs. If your child’s medical care professional has recommended a multidisciplinary evaluation, you can get it all done here by our certified, expert team of pediatric therapists based in Kansas City.

Sensory Integration:

How a child processes and responds to sensory information – sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch – can be reflected in their emotional reactions. Some children find everyday activities such as dressing themselves, overwhelming and distressing. When we have a disconnect in any one of these steps, the whole chain can be disrupted. Challenges in daily life & social interactions can occur.

At Beyond Function, LLC, our therapists are skilled in helping children develop the ‘sensory integration’ necessary to manage in these circumstances.
