Essential Skills for Children
Corvallis Children’s Therapy provides fun, active, play-based occupational therapy.
With the degree of my child’s disability skills like hand-writing, putting jacket on, tying shoe laces, etc. were simply impossible. Thanks to weekly therapy sessions with Pam my child had achieved goals that seemed completely unattainable. OT had dramatically improved my son’s quality of life. In addition to Pam’s dedication and experience she is also very engaging and fun. In fact, my child calls it ’play date’ with Pam, not a therapy session. He truly enjoys his OT sessions! ” –Katya B
We help special kids in the Willamette Valley to participate fully in their family, school life and community with their peers.
My daughter is an eight year old with high functioning autism. Pam has been, without question, the most effective occupational therapist we have hired. Before our first visit with Pam, my daughter faced many challenges, including an aversion to most food, vestibular disorientation, handwriting deficiencies, poor coordination, and muscular weakness. Over the past two years, Pam has initiated many tailored, yet varied, interventions. I am often amazed that Pam is able to persuade my daughter to not only perform tasks that I can never get her to do, but to also actually enjoy doing them. My daughter has made such significant progress that she has been able to transition in and out of a large 3rd grade mainstream classroom with little difficulty. Pam is an important reason why my daughter enjoys going to school. I cannot recommend Pam enough.” –Robert Y

Handwriting improved so much! Thank you!!!”
Fun and Active
Your child will have fun while gaining skills, and will look forward to coming again. Therapy is fast-paced, activity-based and movement rich.
My son has started going recently to Corvallis Children’s Therapy. He has so much fun while getting therapy for his sensory issues. Today, while we were on our way he asked me in an enthusiastic voice – ‘Mom, are we going to the toy doctor?’ And of course I said yes! Thank you Pam for the help you are giving my son!” –Claudia B
Therapeutic activities are introduced in a developmental sequence and adjusted as skills increase, to continually provide just the right challenge.
When I first brought my son, who is on the Autism Spectrum, to Corvallis Children’s Therapy, he had significant developmental delays, including speech regression and movement skill delays. Within two visits, my son’s speech development began to skyrocket and he began saying short sentences. He began doing physical tasks that were beyond his abilities before. Since those early days, his skills have now nearly caught up with his age group, and I am so glad to have worked with Pam! Through my son’s meltdowns and oppositional behaviors, Pam has always been kind and wonderfully patient. When I asked my son if he liked going to the Play Doctor, he said, ‘Well, YEAH… ’, and when I asked him why, he said, ‘Because I have all kinds of fun there.’ ” –Sara D

Pam worked with the children in my classroom, learning their needs, shared effective ideas for occupational therapy and trained all the adults in the classroom, thus ensuring sound strategies throughout the time the kids were in school.

Pam has been the most wonderful gift for parents with a disabled child. Our daughter has made incredible gains with Pam’s support! Some examples are: (1) she is writing better than I ever thought she would; (2) eating more varied things than I ever thought she would; (3) communicating and knowing what she needs more than I ever thought she would; and (4) physically able to do more than I ever thought she would. She also has been a great listener with many ideas of how to help parents. I truly don’t know where we would be without her support and knowledge. She is a resource in this valley that I highly recommend!!!“ –Alicia T
