We are pediatric occupational and physical therapists helping kids build strong bodies and minds through play!

At The Inspired Treehouse, our passion is teaching parents, caregivers, professionals, and kids about the power of play!

In 2013, we launched our blog to share activity ideas and information with parents and professionals to help them navigate common developmental issues that come up for kids. Since then, The Inspired Treehouse has become one of the most popular online platforms for therapists, teachers, and parents all over the world who are looking for information and activities to support healthy development in their kids. Our site also offers an online shop full of ebooks, courses, printables and more!

Inspired by the success of our online business, we opened a non-profit organization in 2017 called The Treehouse. In our storefront space just outside of Cleveland, we offer low-cost developmental play groups led by pediatric occupational and physical therapists. Our passion is to ensure that every child has the opportunity to engage in structured play experiences regardless of their ability level or their family’s income. We now serve more than 300 families in the Cleveland area, providing play groups, events, and support to parents/caregivers.

1 Virtual Playgroup Session

If you have enjoyed our themed activities that we share each week to promote developmental skills, you will LOVE our virtual playgroup experiences. Every Monday morning at 10 am, EST, we jump on a Zoom link and do 30 minutes of fine, gross and sensory motor filled activities around the same theme that the kids who are coming into our brick and mortar location, The Treehouse, do. You can and your child can participate, too -- all from the safety and comfort of your own home. All you need is a few supplies that you already have around the house -- crayons, markers, paper, a printable or two. We send you a supply list and the Zoom link on the evening before the group. You will receive an email from theinspiredtreehouse@gmail.com with the next steps to schedule your virtual play group. It is the perfect environment for learning fine and gross motor skills, social skills, direction following, self-regulation and more!
