Back to School!

And our Fall Schedule has begun! Thank you to all of our families who filled out the fall scheduling forms. Your flexibility allows us to serve as many families as possible. The Fall schedule is now well underway, and we look forward to starting the school year with you!


We have expanded! The office next door became available to rent, and we jumped on the chance to have more office space for our therapists and office staff as well as the opportunity to add treatment space in our existing space. We are happy to have the  chance to help more kids! Peek into our old office and check out our new free-standing suspended equipment system!                                                            
We are partnering with the Monte Verde Fire Station to host our first ever DICP safety program on Saturday, September 7th from 2-3pm. Join us for:
  • Fire truck tour
  • Outdoor obstacle course
  • DICP tips and safety resources
  • Coffee and treats for grown-ups!
  • Call the office for more info

Fall / Winter Vacations
Please tell your therapist if you have any vacations planned and know you will need to take time off from OT. We always try to schedule make-ups with your therapist when possible.

Therapist Vacations

If your therapist is out of the office, we still want to see you! 

We know that children make the most significant therapeutic gains
 if they attend therapy regularly and consistently. 
We also know that each therapist has their own point of view, and it can be valuable to to occasionally have someone with a different perspective work with your child. If your therapist is sick or going on vacation, we will do our best to make it up or find another therapist who can see your child at or near their scheduled time. We encourage our families to take advantage of these make ups.

CONGRATULATIONS SENA!
Help us congratulate DICP co-owner and therapist Sena Felt for being granted a Women of Influence award by the Silicon Valley Business Journal! She accepted this honor earlier this year at a ceremony where she spoke about the topic of women and “firsts”. We are so proud of Sena and what she and Sahana have done for 
Development is Child’s Play! 

Congratulations Sena!
We set up a table at the award ceremony to spread the news about DICP!
Sena was asked to give a short speech about after receiving her award!
Two of Sena's three gorgeous kids were on hand to see her accept her award!
