How We Play at InterPlay

Play is a child’s work. It is through play that children can be engaged to interact with their environments, be motivated to challenge themselves, and participate in activities that will help them to perceive and respond to their environment.

We use to play as a mean to achieve our goals … However, the process is very complex and interactive, with the therapist identifying specific sensory needs. The therapist is constantly adapting activities, presenting new challenges for the child, and integrating these activities with the child’s interests and self drives in mind. Through this process the child is then set up for improvements with self-regulation, postural control, praxis and sequencing, eye/hand coordination, fine motor skill development, social and emotional development, and academic learning.

Testimonials

MB & BB
Words cannot even begin to describe how very grateful and pleased we were with Dr. Pilar Saa and her professional staff of Occupational Therapists. We had an appointment for an initial evaluation with Dr. Saa scheduled a few weeks in the future for when she returned from being out of the country, but we called her office as our 3 year-old son was in some immediate distress and she squeezed us in before she left. We have never forgotten that!! Our son was able to start his OT immediately with the most wonderful, warm, kind, compassionate therapist that we all grew to love. He actually looked forward to his appointments at the play-gym. We are happy to report that our son is thriving and doing wonderfully. We cannot thank Dr. Saa and her staff enough for being such a special part of our "village". They held our hands through every step of the way, educated us and guided us as we navigated this scary thing called "Sensory Processing Disorder". We highly recommend Dr. Pilar Saa and her staff at InterPlay!!!!
