Pacific Pediatric Therapy
Occupational Therapy Services
Some babies are born into this world with development challenges, often due to medically complex deliveries and premature birth.
Occupational therapy helps an infant bond and communicate with caregivers, develop self-regulation skills to cope with experiences outside the womb, and develop the sensory and motor skills needed to effectively interact, explore and play within their environment.
I am passionate about working with families in your home setting to help newborns improve eating, quality sleeping, have effective elimination, and support fine and gross motor developmental progression. As a pediatric occupational therapist, I help children who have a disability, disorder, illness, or skill deficit that hampers successful participation in these everyday activities.
Erin Springer, MOTR/L, CNT, NTMTC, CLE
I have been a registered and licensed Occupational Therapist for the past two decades. Even though I love to travel, Seattle is home, the place where I was born and raised. I received my Masters in OT from the University of Puget Sound.
I have worked in a variety of settings over the years but majority of my practice, and certainly my passion, has been focused with pediatrics, specifically infants, in their first year of life. I feel very lucky to continue to work with babies in a NICU/hospital setting as well as working with families in their own homes whether they have needed that early hospital support or not.
I am a certified neonatal therapist , a certified lactation educator, as well as a certified neonatal touch and massage therapist. I am trained in Gillespie approach CFT and have taken a number of CST courses as well. I have the pleasure of teaching massage to other therapists and nurses nationally and internationally with Creative Therapy Consultants.
When I am not working as an OT, you can find me in the garden, baking, taking photographs or traveling with my husband and two girls.
