WHERE CHILDREN BLOSSOM AND FAMILIES GROW.
Although Early Choice Pediatric Therapy (ECPT) has been through several incarnations since its initial inception in 2002 this privately owned pediatric therapy clinic has remained faithful to it’s original mission statement: “To provide quality occupational, [physical and speech therapy]; to be an innovative program which supports cutting-edge treatment and evaluation approaches; to provide education and support to families; and to increase awareness of sensory integration and neuromotor issues that affect the pediatric population.”
In 2018 ECPT became entirely focused on Occupational Therapy. It continues to be owned and operated by its original founders and co-owners, Robin Pelletier PT, MPT, Executive Director, and Elizabeth Lehl, OTL, Clinical Director. While Robin no longer provides direct PT service at ECPT she does consult (by appointment only,) and she continues as the primary administrator of the practice. Elizabeth, with nearly 30 years of pediatric experience in a variety of settings, provides Occupational Therapy to children birth through 18 years in one-on-one sessions in a fun, playful environment, with her primary focus being on fostering mastery, self-confidence and self-esteem in each child while providing education and support to parents and families.
