OT 4 KIDS LLC
Specializing in Sensory Motor Development
Words From Our Parents
Contacting OT-4 Kids was the single best decision we've made as parents. Our now 7 year-old son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder a year ago and we immediately started researching places for therapy. After speaking with Patti we knew immediately we had found the right place. Patti made us feel comfortable right away. She acknowledged our concerns and provided us with specific information as to how OT-4 Kids could help. We met our therapist, Danielle, soon after the initial call and we couldn't have found a better match for our family. Danielle treats our son with so much love and support. He started therapy as a shy and cautious child. Over the past year he has blossomed into a confident, enthusiastic, and social first grader who finally seems comfortable in his own skin. We could not recommend OT-4 Kids more strongly. It is a place geared toward understanding the whole family. As parents, we feel included in the process at every turn. This collaboration educates parents, and it provides relief from the concerns of having a child with sensory challenges. I can say without hesitation we have created a bond with OT-4 Kids that will last long after our son completes therapy. OT-4 Kids is nothing short of exceptional!
"I love OT!! I wish I could come every day! I especially love the "fun room". - 7 year old student
Our daughter comes to OT 4 Kids once a week. During her sessions she does a variety of activities that keep her engaged and happy. She doesn't even realize she is "working" and strengthening her body and mind. Corry, her therapist, is sensitive to her needs and is in touch with her feelings and abilities. We have seen tremendous growth in our daughter and are thrilled with her progress.
We so appreciate what Elisabeth has done for our daughter. She was magnificent not only working with our daughter by gaining her trust and helping her but also leading us through the process and containing our worries through the constant communication and positive attitude. It is so wonderful to see how our daughter has blossomed over the past year - physically, developmentally and emotionally. We feel she has come so far in being comfortable with herself that others now don't see her as that quiet little girl who chews on her hair or shirt but they see the funny, creative and special little girl that she is. Thank you, Thank you, for bringing her back and what you do for all the children and families you work with. You are truly amazing at what you do.
We have been working with OT4Kids for close to two years and couldn't be more pleased with the work and the results we saw for our son! When we noticed that our son had problems interacting with other children we decided to seek professional help. We got in contact with Patti and scheduled a comprehensive evaluation. We received a very detailed evaluation report. The report was easy to understand and we finally had a diagnosis (Sensory Integration Dysfunction) and a very specific record of his abilities. Patti took the time to meet with us and talk through the whole report and answer all of our questions. Our son started Occupational Therapy shortly thereafter. Over the time of the therapy our son worked with two therapists, Lisa and Danielle. It was a great relief for us to see that it was easy for him to bond with them. They always checked in with us to see how things evolved outside of therapy and answered any questions that came up. They also gave us tasks to supplement the therapy at home; we always felt very involved with our son's treatment. Our son has made great progress. Through the exercises he has built his core strength, his balance, he has a better spatial awareness, and he greatly improved his fine motor skills. For a time the therapy session was shared between our son and another child with his therapist. This gave both of them the chance to work on their social skills in a supportive environment. Over all with the help of OT4Kids our son is now more successful and more confident in his abilities. We can't thank Patti and her team enough!
Michelle is awesome! We could not be more pleased with the work she has done with our 5 year-old son. Not only has he shown measurable progress in the areas where he needed to grow, but he actually looks forward to going every week. Michelle is friendly, professional, and really enjoys her work. We highly recommend her and the entire OT 4 Kids staff.
Michelle is a walking portrait of patience with a smile. You will not find a corporate, clinical person with Michelle. Instead, you will find a professional with a giant heart. Her upbeat, can-do attitude helped my son conquer his fear of failing: she knew just the right pace to help him with areas as different as handwriting to tying his shoes to body/spatial awareness. She tailors sessions to the child's individual needs rather than a scripted lesson plan, making sure that the activities challenge but not overwhelm. Once, when my son almost refused to go to a session because he was overwhelmed by a hard day at school, Michelle took over and by the end of the hour, he was smiling and bounced right back to a happier self. I've seen her work such magic with young children, skillfully redirecting their "off-task" behavior. She's got the rare ability to reach kids and help them progress, whatever their challenges. I highly recommend Michelle, if you are lucky enough to get her!
