6264 Ferris Square, San Diego, CA  92121

We Specialize in Intensive Pediatric Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy

Pediatric Occupational Therapy is a profession concerned with promoting a child’s health and well-being through occupation. A child’s occupation is to learn, grow, develop, and to play! Therapeutic activities may include physical play such as jumping, climbing and fine motor tasks such as buttoning, getting dressed, feeding, and writing. Some children have difficulty meeting their age appropriate developmental skills, and may need some help to achieve these skills that propel them into adulthood.

We provide services that support and promote the achievement of a child’s independence and overall development. We believe in a team approach with all of the families we work with – emphasizing effective communication with parents and individualized strategies for home to carry over all of the gains we make within treatment.

What Our Customers are Saying About Us

-Rachel G., San Diego

Dr. Stephanie was so knowledgeable and was able to help us better understand the sensory processing issues my child was having. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Stephanie and Ms. Jen and the difference they have made in my son’s life and in our family.”

-Steve H., San Diego

I can’t say enough about how amazing this practice is.  Over the last five years, we’ve seen dozens of other doctors and therapists (in NYC, Chicago and SD) and finding San Diego Occupational Therapy was a huge relief.

-Jessica F., San Diego

Dr. Stephanie and her team have made a huge difference in our son’s ability to cope with his surroundings.  We are so thankful to have found an OT who knows her stuff backwards and forwards and most importantly knows how to translate that knowledge into a customized treatment plan that has worked wonders for our child.

-Stefanie N., Rancho Santa Fe

I’ve been with this clinic for almost three years. The therapists are all warm and inviting.  We’ve seen my son blossom and become happier and more comfortable with himself. Our sessions have always been fun and something we look forward to doing. I would recommend SDOT to anyone who is looking for this service!

-Jenn M., San Diego

San Diego Occupational Therapy was heaven sent when I was searching for answers with my daughter.  They guided us through her sensory issues.  She went on to be diagnosed with autism.  They have helped us to see her abilities.  I am continually amazed at the progress she makes and the love she has for Jen, her therapist,  and everyone she encounters there.  I cannot recommend this place enough.  If you are searching for OT or Sensory Integration help, call them!  You will not be disappointed.
