A Word From Our Clients...

"I have been taking my 8-year old son to Susan at Just for Kids Pediatric Occupational Therapy for a little over a year now and we have seen great improvements in his handwriting skills and fine- and gross-motor development. Susan is professional, friendly and keeps up-to-date on the latest techniques and information. My son loves her!"
