PFOT, while still a small company, continues to grow and work
hard to meet your needs. It was conceived and established in 1989
by us, Michelle Tobias and Ilene Goldkopf, and yes we are Occupational
Therapists. Our initial goal was, and still is, to assist Occupational
Therapists and others, concerned with the development of children,
find the unique materials needed to provide effective, appropriate,
motivating and fun, pediatric therapy and learning. That's why the
catalog is arranged into catagories pertinent to develpment. This
makes classroom, home programs and gift giving recommendations easier
As therapists, we have
over 35 years of combined experience in pediatrics & developmental
disabilities. We are both Board Certified Pediatric OT's and are
certified to administer the SIPT. We are coauthors of the
book "OT GOALS (Goals & Objectives Associated with Learning)"
published by Therapy Skillbuilders, Inc. We are also contributing
authors to the book "Hand Function in the child: Foundations for
Re-mediation" published by Mosby, Inc. and continually have projects
We both continue to
work full time as Occupational Therapists, servicing public schools
in Central New Jersey, as well as private clients in our clinic.
We are also pleased to be included in the new AOTA Pediatric Resource
Guide. If you have any therapy-related questions, we'll try to help
answer them or lead you to a resource for the info.
Hope this helps in understanding
us and our catalogue a little better - but please keep writing and
calling, we enjoy hearing from you!
Ilene and Michelle
