Our Team

Development Is CHILD’S PLAY! prides itself in the quality of our staff. We recruit the best possible candidates who are professionally trained and skilled in engaging children in the therapeutic process. Then, we provide extensive supervision and mentoring to further develop the skills of our therapists. All clinical staff members have degrees in occupational therapy, have passed a national exam and are licensed in California to provide occupational therapy.

The majority of the staff at Development Is CHILD’S PLAY! is certified or in the process of obtaining certification in the evaluation and treatment of sensory processing disorders. Therapists may have other additional training in feeding/swallowing issues, neurodevelopmental treatment, auditory interventions (e.g. therapeutic listening); fine motor issues (e.g. handwriting programs) and other techniques. We train interns and provide advanced training in sensory integration intervention for international occupational therapists.
