Susan has been extremely helpful, kind, fun and professional. My daughter looked forward to working with Susan every week because she thought of OT as playing more than work/therapy. Susan is great at meeting the kids at their level. When my daughter resisted OT activities, Susan quickly learned that anything Minnie Mouse was a huge motivator and would find a way to incorporate Minnie Mouse when my daughter participated. For example, Susan would have Minnie Mouse ears for my daughter to wear or Susan would wear a Minnie Mouse shirt, which made my daughter so happy! Susan was also extremely flexible with my work schedule and changing days/times as needed; however, most of the time we had a regular day and time.
During the COVID pandemic, Susan followed CDC recommendations. Initially, we completed telehealth appointments. Susan gave me a list of supplies to have available and would walk me through the therapy activity and provide guidance to my daughter. It was also a great way for Susan to assess and provide guidance in our home environment. Once we were able to meet in person again, Susan continued to follow CDC guidance. My daughter has a personal bag with items only she touched, temperature checks upon entry and hand hygiene. In addition, any equipment that was used was sanitized. Susan was also creative in performing most of the OT activities outside (weather permitting).
Susan was a pillar of my daughter’s success and helped prepare her for kindergarten. Due to Susan OT work with my daughter, I believe that my daughter entered into to kindergarten not being behind her peers. Regardless of your child needs (short term or long term OT), I highly recommend Susan and Just for Kids!
Anthony has learned skills that he will carry with him for a lifetime. He has been practicing these skills at school and has made quite an improvement since the beginning of the school year. He has more friends and better relationships with adults. Anthony has been to other social groups and Susan’s is by far the best! We will never forget Susan or the skills she has taught us."
After watching my daughter struggle for the past few years it is finally so wonderful to see her making progress in the right directions. I can't believe I have finally found someone who is so knowledgeable about my child's complex mix of issues including sensory integration dysfunction, ADHD, emotional regulation, and motor processing delays. Your services go way beyond the typical occupation therapy sessions to include a framework which includes teaching me skills so I can best help my daughter thrive. From a forever grateful parent.
My son Izzac, has been working with Susan Horn since his diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder. Susan has been such a wonderful Occupational Therapist to work with. Not only has she been such a great resource for us as parents, she has been so welcoming and loving to our son. For severap months we travelled well over an hour to work with Susan twice a week. Izzac looked forward to every visit. I loved hearing his laughter and joy while in therapy. Susan is so great with him, and he never felt like therapy was something we had to do, but rather something he wanted to do. Thank you Susan for your time spent with us. Thank you for blessing our lives, and helping our son. You have no idea how grateful we have been for all that you have done for our family. Sincerely yours,
Susan Horn is quite simply a wonderful therapist and we are so fortunate to have found her for our 8-year old, who has Sensory Processing Disorder and a host of other neurological and muscular challenges.
Susan began by doing a terrifically thorough assessment, which hadn’t been done for three years. But this wasn’t simply a descriptive document. Susan used it to set clear and specific goals which have helped us see what kind of genuine progress our son has been making.
To call Susan simply a therapist is too limiting a description: she’s a teacher, a playmate, a coach, a cheerleader and a creative artist. Susan is so compassionate and creates an atmosphere of delight for our boy. This isn’t to suggest that the work she’s doing with him is easy. Far from it, Susan is a tireless in her efforts and expects the same from our son. In addition to all the skills she’s helping our son develop, she has given him a stronger sense of his own most priceless of gifts: courage.
Whatever words of praise we can give, they can’t possibly match the excitement on our son’s face every day he gets to go to therapy with Susan. She is a treasure.
I am so grateful that I found Susan for my son who has sensory issues. My 6 year-old son normally has trouble warming up to adults, but has had no trouble warming up to and trusting Susan. She has always been very positive and patient with him and is great at explaining things so that both adults and kids can understand. She really makes the OT experience fun. (I think he secretly looks forward to it!) Susan is very knowledgeable and good at what she does -- in just a few OT sessions we have seen major improvements with our son. Thanks Susan!
As a nurse and mother of 5, I have unusually high standards when I seek professional medical help for any of my children. Susan was the first therapist that my very shy son would actually talk to. And he talked to her a lot at our first session! He is 4 and has a communication disability as well as a sensory integration disorder and never talked to anyone except family until we met her. Her assessment was very thorough. She is knowledgeable, patient, caring and full of new ideas and creative, state of the art approaches for helping our son. He has shown much progress since we began weekly therapy 5 months ago.
