Our mission is to empower therapists and educators with powerful knowledge and practical tools to create happier, healthier children in any setting.

The Approach Behind Hands on Approaches…

Your work as a pediatric therapist or educator is critically important. The impact you can have on a child's present and future functionality and happiness is indescribable.

You deserve support and tools to succeed in the very real struggles, challenges and frustrations you encounter:

  • Lack of time and resources preventing you from being as effective as you can
  • Balancing the needs of the child and the demands of the system
  • Seeing children who are stuck in a cycle of therapies for years

Our Success...

We - Amy (Friedy) Guttmann-Singer and Evelyn (Roizy) Guttmann - experienced those challenges personally over our combined 40 years of OT in school and clinic setting.

We set out to learn, research, discover and develop effective approaches to solve them.

Today, our Hands on OT Rehab clinic helps countless families get to the root of their children's emotional, behavioral and academic issues. Children who were stuck in a cycle of therapies finally saw long-term progress and resolution.

...and Your Success

We want you to have access to these strategies which are deep, evidence-based, and yet simultaneously practical and immediately actionable.

We want you and the children you work with to experience long-term success.

Hands on Approaches courses give you the tools to uncover the cause underlying each child's presenting symptoms - and deliver focused, individualized therapy that gets both immediate and long-term results.

Come learn with us… and become the one people credit as having made THE difference in their lives.
