"Tammy has been working with my son for 3 years. She is an amazing OT! My son has gained so many skills because of Tammy! He is more confident and proud of himself! Tammy never gives up on him! She believes every child can learn and make progress! I couldn't ask for a better OT!"
"One of the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, she not only understands the unique needs of all children but uses effective strategies to build up in their abilities. I had the privilege to work with her for many years and witnessed how various children became successful and the difference she made in their lives after her precise intervention. I highly recommend her services and support the quality of her work."

My name is Tammy Hubbard, OTR/L. I'm a Mom and the owner/primary therapist of OT4Kidz, LLC. I founded OT4Kidz, LLC in 2013 with a passionate desire to provide quality in-home occupational therapy services to children and their families using a comprehensive, holistic therapy approach. I have always believed that to successfully foster a child's development, you have to look at their bigger picture and you must support their caregivers ability to carryout strategies and skills worked on in therapy. This approach ensures a positive, empowering therapy experience, more fun and more success!
