Amber Chaves, OTR/L
If there's anything I feel strongly about it's that our children need more space and time to grow and play. They need slower routines and calmer settings and more time to immerse themselves in their creative worlds. (And so do we!)
As a pediatric occupational therapist I take a holistic approach to therapeutic intervention. For children who are facing an obstacle in development or are unable to access what they need, I take into account the gestational period, their birth, the crucial first years of development, and the current functional level of the child in order to design an intervention plan that is both child-centered and addresses the underlying factors that impact their ability to play, learn, and grow.
Join in my classes for community, workshops for parents and caregivers, or utilize my service offerings to help your family grow through more wonder and play.
