ROOTS Therapeutic Services provides occupational therapy in a home-like atmosphere, warm and welcoming. We have indoor and outdoor spaces to provide optimal therapeutic benefits. On 11 acres of land, children can engage on the playground, in the fields, berry patches, and within the forest.
Individual, Groups, and More!
Evaluations and Individual OT
Individual occupational therapy services start with an evaluation, developing your child's occupational profile. Ongoing individual services are typically 1x/week.
Groups are formed based on community need. While each child will have individual goals, groups place a strong emphasis on sensory and social-emotional development.

"The progress that my son made in working with her was tremendous; and his relationship with her so special to him. We are forever grateful."
Occupational Therapy Moments
Picking berries in summer support fine motor pincer grasps, confidence to balance and reach within the prickly bushes, and encourages healthy snacking.
Cohabitating with wild animals is a keystone interaction pattern between children and nature.
Meal prep activities encourage independence and nourishment. OTs use task analysis to obtain that just right challenge for the child to learn while experiencing success.
Accepting help from a peer provides a different connection and sense of support.
We use real tools for learning. Real tools are higher quality, work better, are more efficient, and show the child respect.
Children use their entire body to navigate the outdoors with confidence.
