Therapy and Locations 

Our therapists have worked with children with many types of disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Genetic Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Communication Disorders, Attention Disorders, Sensory Processing Disorder and others.   

Therapy is tailored to meet the complex needs of each individual. Our therapists build on the strengths and interests of each client while helping to improve areas of need.

In order to best serve families, we have three clinic-based locations.  We have an amazing multi-disciplinary team in El Dorado County (right outside of Folsom), Roseville, and Yolo County (in the heart of Davis).  For more details on our locations, click on the Driving Directions tab.

The Regulated and Ready Basic Tool Kit supports sensory modulation and self-awareness. We help you teach children (and adults) how to use sensory tools and sensory input to support self-regulation.

These activities are easily adjusted to click with children and adults of all ages and ability levels. By supporting social-emotional development, we can help people connect with each other and develop strong relationships!

How To Use The Regulated and Ready Basic Tool Kit

I hope that this Regulated and Ready Basic Tool Kit helps you and your family connect! 

We all have days, weeks, or even years that are really hard. We recorded this training to meet you and your family where you are at. We want to help you as a parent, teacher, or therapist feel better equipped to support your children with self-awareness and self-regulation.

Breaking these activities down into concrete steps and manageable chunks, we are here to support you on your journey.

Sensory Motor Activity Books
Our sensory motor activity books are designed to support children develop in a fun and engaging way 

There are activities for children with skills at the preschool through the junior high level. You can grade the difficulty level of the activities to create the "just right challenge" and help each child feel successful and challenged at the same time. 
The activities target the areas of posture, visual perception, visual motor coordination, ocular motor coordination, handwriting, motor planning and sensory processing.
These packets can be used in many different ways:
  • Families: Have fun as a family while incorporating some important foundational skills.
  • Teachers: Provide hands-on, interactive, sensory-rich supplemental activities to ease transitions and guide development of foundational handwriting skills.
  • Administrators: Improve ease of implementing the Response To Intervention model by supporting students and staff in addressing OT-related concerns before making a referral for an OT evaluation.
  • Therapists: Save hours and hours of treatment planning time by using activities from the packet during your session or selecting activities to create home programs.
