FORWARD IS A PACE 

Pediatric Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy services located in SE Portland in the Brooklyn neighborhood. 

We have around a 1 month waitlist for physical therapy and 1 - 2 month waitlist for occupational therapy.
Please note that this waitlist time is an average. After school appointments are usually more challenging to schedule, and your wait time may be longer if you are looking for a very specific day or time.

Philosophy

"Forward is a pace" is a phrase that encourages runners to keep moving forward, regardless of the pace, and also applies to children in therapy. It's a reminder that progress is not always linear or swift, but rather a continuous journey of growth and improvement. By embracing this approach, we create a joyful environment that highlights the power of determination and celebrates every step forward, no matter how small.

Parent Reviews

" You won’t find a better place to take your child. Therapy with an abundance of love and fun! "

" We started bringing our daughter in at around 14 months, and she just made everything about helping her build up the areas that she needed feel so much better than some of our previous experiences. From working with our schedules, to easing our worries about the outcomes, to helping our little girl make a ton of progress in a very short time, we could not be more grateful. I whole heartedly recommend her to families. Thank you Melissa and team!! "

" We are so lucky and grateful to have found PACE and get Emily for our skilled, accepting and intuitive OT! Emily takes the time to assess our daughter's many needs and creates fun and neuro-inclusive activities to help her to understand and manage some her challenges with ADHD, sensory processing, dyslexia and dysgraphia. Emily even provides us with research and science-based explanations/handouts of the root of my daughter's struggles. My daughter absolutely loves going to "play" at OT/PACE and would rather be there daily than just once a week. Also, the small, quiet office is so much better for her than the big, noisy, overstimulating larger therapy center that we started it. Everyone at PACE is truly fantastic, patient and so understanding of neurodiversity. "
