Butterfly Pediatric Therapy

Helping Children Spread Their Wings 


Children have "occupations" such as learning, playing and socializing.  Occupational Therapy for children uses play-based therapeutic intervention for successful participation in these daily activities.  OT's can also help parents by developing routines and teaching therapeutic techniques for their child to be used at home, school and the community. 

Evaluation: We offer comprehensive Occupational Therapy evaluation for any of the challenges listed below and more. Our therapists use standardized tests, parent interview, clinical observations, and previous medical/therapy reports to obtain information about your child and to assess their clinical needs. 


Individual Treatment: Based on the results and recommendations in the OT evaluation, your child's therapist will collaborate with you to develop a customized treatment plan for your child.  We believe in partnering with families to ensure their priorities are being addressed in the therapy.


Groups: We offer skill matched small groups for addressing Feeding challenges, Motor delays and Handwriting issues. Contact us to sign up for groups.


Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP): The SSP is a five-day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. Based on Dr. Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, by calming the physiological and emotional state, the door is opened for improved communication and more successful therapy.


Integrated listening Systems (iLs): iLs is a multi-sensory program for improving brain function. The activities are fun and can be customized for all ages and skill levels.
