We help children at all ages and developmental levels improve their quality of life and become more independent. Our team provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language therapy to meet the diverse needs of the children we treat. We provide developmental assessments and advanced gait evaluations, help children who use wheelchairs with seating and technology training, and assist children who use orthotics, prosthetics, or augmentative communication devices.

William "Blake" Tanner, SLP works with children ages twelve months and older who have a variety of developmental delays, including autism and/or feeding challenges such as aversions to food texture or temperatures. He specializes in helping kids expand the types of food they will eat and improving their chewing skills. Blake also works with school-age kids on speech and articulation, with special attention to the letter "r." He is fluent in Spanish and particularly enjoys working with Spanish-speaking patients and families.
A parent himself, Blake understands the stress that can accompany feeding and speech concerns. He is committed to ensuring parents have the skills and tools they need to support their child's progress at home.
Outside of work, Blake volunteers with an adaptive wall climbing program that offers kids with disabilities and special needs the opportunity to have fun and build confidence through physical activity. Volunteers receive special training to ensure kids with conditions such as cerebral palsy or spina bifida can step outside of their comfort zones in a safe environment to tackle a challenge that may be physically and emotionally intimidating. He loves watching these children conquer their fears, explore their potential, and have a great time together.
Blake earned a bachelor's degree in Spanish and a master's degree in speech-language pathology at Idaho State University. Prior to joining St. Luke's Children's Rehabilitation, he cared for adult patients with swallowing disorders and worked in home health.
Originally from Pocatello, Blake likes gardening, rock climbing, and mountain biking in his free time.
