Our mission is to equip children with the skills necessary to thrive in their peer community.

Developmental Pathways for Kids (DPK) is comprehensive pediatric clinic that is located in a neighborhood next to a private elementary school in Redwood City, CA. Since we opened our doors in 1997, we have been known as the “playhouse” to thousands of children and families in the Bay Area.

We provide pediatric Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Language Services and Counseling Services for children and families. Click here for more information about our Services.

Additionally, we offer a unique social interaction therapy called the Integrated Play Group® program that combines “novice” players (atypically-developing peers) with “expert” players (typically-developing peers).  Click here for information about Integrated Play Groups® (Developed by Pamela Wolfberg www.autisminstitute.com)

Our therapists have advanced training in the areas of Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism, Dyspraxia, Apraxia, and other developmental, psychosocial, musculoskeletal, neurological, and learning disorders. We pride ourselves on using evidence-based practice techniques in a playful environment with state of the art equipment.

 The staff at DPK also have a strong commitment to the community and are involved with a variety of community organizations, participate in a variety of support groups, serve as board members, and provide educational programs throughout the community and offer workshops throughout the United States based on the DPK model of combining sensory integration and integrated playgroups.
