Our Mission 

FUNdamentals is a pediatric occupational therapy clinic located in Fairfax, Virginia.  Melissa Grant, lead therapist, has 11 years of experience working in the Washington, DC area.  It is her mission to help children of all ages and disabilities overcome their delays, or challenges, through play/sensory-based therapy.  Every child is different and at FUNdamentals we strive to provide each child, and their family, with their own individual strategies and treatments to help them function consistently in every day environments.

 To help with convenience we offer home, school, and clinic visits.  We also strive to provide affordable therapy options, check out our Events section for our latest therapy promotion!

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy helps children refine, or develop, skills necessary to participate successfully in every day activities both at home and at school.   Occupational therapists evaluate a child’s functional (fine/visual motor, gross motor, and sensory motor) level and if needed, create an individual plan to help the child reach their full potential.  Here at FUNdamentals, our occupational therapists take a client centered approach so that the treatment fits in naturally with each family’s capabilities and needs. 

    

"Listen to the mustn'ts, child, listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the wont's.  Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me. Anything can happen, child, anything can be.

— Shel Silverstein
