Our Mission

At Foundations Pediatric Therapy, we strive to provide comprehensive, innovative, and evidence-based therapy services that build a strong foundation for children in all areas of development. By using a collaborative approach we are able to tailor our services to meet your child’s and family's needs for successful participation in everyday life.

Our Vision

To support emotional, social, physical, and mental development for improved quality of life in children and their families throughout Houston.

 

What We Do

Foundations Pediatric Therapy of Houston, PLLC is a holistic pediatric therapy clinic offering occupational therapy services based on building relationships to support social emotional development, facilitate sensory integration, improve gross and fine motor coordination, and decrease anxiety. We utilize various evidence based treatment modalities that are not typically offered in pediatric therapy clinics and tailor treatment to each child and their family system.

We treat a variety of diagnoses including, but not limited to, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delays, Dyspraxia, Down Syndrome, ADD/ADHD, Anxiety disorders, Emotional/Behavioral Problems, and Learning Disabilities. But to us, your child is more than just a diagnosis. We strive to understand how their nervous system functions, how they’re impacted by sensory experiences, and how their motor abilities support or inhibit them in daily activities. We recognize that your child is part of a greater unit, your family, thus strive to improve quality of life for everyone.

 

Our Approach

At Foundations Pediatric Therapy our approach with children is based on the Developmental, Individual Differences, Relationship-Based (DIR®) Floortime Model. This intervention model involves developing trusting relationships in a playful, respectful, and joyful manner to promote development in all areas. Drs. Stanley Greenspan and Serena Weider developed this approach based on research supporting the power of relationships and human connections to promote engagement, communication, behavior regulation, and thinking. These social emotional skills help form the foundation for mental and physical functioning in our social world. Our therapists take the time to understand what your child loves and helps them maintain a regulated state. This enables therapy to become a more meaningful and motivating experience for your child, creating lasting effects.

We are unique in our approach as we combine our knowledge and practice of DIR/Floortime with a wide variety of specialized training and continuing education experience. Additionally, our therapists use a highly collaborative approach and designate time to discuss each child’s needs so that clients can benefit from all therapists’ expertise.
