The OT Clubhouse offers clinic and community-based occupational therapy services for children and young adults throughout the Eastside.
Occupational therapy can meet a variety of developmental needs. Some children have been referred to OT by a teacher or other professional.
Some parents find us on their own with a hunch that their child seems to be struggling in some way.
Motor skills, Attention, and Sensory Processing differences may be causing breakdowns at school, home, and the community.
Occupational therapy addresses those activities that occupy our time: meeting basic self-care needs, playing, learning, working, moving, managing our time, money, transportation, and how we control our bodies, our movements, and our body's interactions, called self-regulation.
Whether you need help with a young child's development, would like to supplement school-based therapy, or want to start addressing broader life skills for an older child or young adult, the OT Clubhouse targets life where it is lived.

Within the first few minutes of my observation, one thing that becomes instantly apparent amongst children referred for Occupational Therapy (OT), are differences in bilateral integration and sequencing, reluctance to cross midline, and poor midline weight distribution and balance. Bilateral integration is the coordination of right and left sides of the body. Children with differences […]
We are all about the “getting ready” for our children with sensory processing needs. That is, our focus is front-loaded. As therapists, while prepping our sessions, we have ready what each child needs in order to be at an optimal place for learning. As parents, we have learned what works for our child to be […]
I’ve been unable to find any evidence regarding the benefits of showering, but anecdotally, it has become one of my favorite self-regulation tools. As children head back to school, parents are in the position of adjusting their child’s sensory diet to now fit the morning routine. That can be tough. When I became a parent, […]
In addition to our industry’s baseline assessment tools, the OT Clubhouse is now offering the “gold standard” in sensory integration and processing assessment using the SENSORY INTEGRATION AND PRAXIS TEST (SIPT), “the most comprehensive and statistically sound measure for assessing some important aspects of sensory integration” (Bundy, Lane, & Murray, 2002, pp. 170-71). The SIPT is a group of 17 subtests, standardized on a normative sample of nearly 2,000 children living in the US and Canada and is offered to our clients ages 4 and up.
Requiring 120 hours of continuing education and certification (pending, October 2014 by University of Southern California & WPS: Western Psychological Services) to administer, interpret, and design sensory processing programs using the SIPT data, you can be assured that you have objective and standardized information directing your child’s treatment course.
