Advanced Pediatric Therapies, with locations in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, is a pediatric occupational therapy practice committed to meeting the needs of children. We focus on providing a highly individualized, multi-faceted and holistic treatment approach to ensure that each child's needs are met.
At this time we are only offering Telehealth services to support your child in an attempt to keep everyone safe. To learn more about what Telehealth is click here. We have been receiving positive feedback from our clients, like the one below, in regards to our Telehealth services.
"I just wanted to write and tell you what a positive experience we had with "virtual OT" this morning with Melissa. She was really helpful in getting us set up at home to create the right challenges for our son, and provided us with useful, actionable feedback on how to support his needs while we're staying at home for prolonged periods of time. She even found ways for us to build an obstacle course in the house! The online connection was great, the app was really easy to use, and our son really appreciated the chance to connect with her. We definitely miss the gyms and seeing all the smiling faces, but in the meantime, this is a really helpful and positive experience for all of us, and we look forward to continuing this way until it's safe to resume normal life. Thank you for the fast response to all of the craziness, the creative thinking, and the continued support. Please extend our gratitude to Melissa, and keep up the good work!"
Our spaces are playful and inviting therapeutic environments with state of the art equipment that can provide a range of opportunities for sensory input, while promoting physical development, challenging motor planning skills, as well as increasing confidence for developing cognitive and social skills.
We are also a National Mentor Site for therapists wishing to increase their competency with the Therapeutic Listening Program.
Our therapists are highly trained occupational therapists who specialize in treating sensory integration dysfunction (SPD).
We are currently transitioning everyone to telehealth to continue your childs care during this crisis. You can learn more about our Telehealth option by clicking here!

"For me, and I think I can safely speak for my staff, there is no greater feeling than helping a child to feel understood and helping a parent to better relate to their child. We help families to understand their child. It is in that knowing and understanding of a child’s individual differences that meaning can be found behind all behaviors." Sharron Donnelly, Owner
