LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A new clinic opening in Louisville will specialize in treating children with neuromuscular diseases.

The clinic is a partnership between University of Louisville Physicians, Kosair Children's Hospital and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

It will provide highly specialized medical care for children with the nine main forms of muscular dystrophy and more than 30 other neuromuscular diseases. A release from UofL Physicians says the clinic's affiliation with the Muscular Dystrophy Association will also allow patients and families to benefit from the MDA's range of support services and resources.

The specialized care will include physical, respiratory and speech therapy.

A grand opening for the clinic is planned for Feb. 24.
