Our goal is to build upon your child’s strengths to promote further independence in daily activities of life, thus empowering every child step by step. We take a holistic approach in evaluating your child to understand how occupational therapy can most positively impact their life.
In conjunction with their caregivers, teachers and health practitioners, we will take part in connecting the dots and determining a treatment plan that can address the immediate as well as long term needs of every child.
Meet the Director and Founder of CTD OT
Marianne Rho, founder of Connect the Dots, has been a pediatric occupational therapist since 1998. Upon graduating magna cum laude from the University of Southern California with a Bachelors of Science in Occupational Therapy, she has immersed herself in the pediatric world. Her background includes experiences with clinic, home and school based sessions, with children of all ages and diagnoses. To continue her expertise with young children, she obtained a Masters of Arts in Early Childhood Special Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. In 2002, she became SIPT (Sensory Integration Praxis Test) certified from the University of Southern California/Western Psychological Services. In 2005, she became certified as a Chair Yoga Instructor, learning how to adapt and teach yoga to children who have difficulties working on the floor.
Marianne was recently featured in a FOX5 News Television Interview discussing school-aged children wearing masks and also collaborated with Bloom to offer ideas on Things You Can Do With Your Baby in a Bouncer Right Now.
