We were honored to receive the Clinical Excellence award in 2002 from the Texas Occupational Therapy
Association. This award is rarely given to non-research facilities. We continue to strive for even greater clinical
excellence with each child we treat.

|Occupational Therapy Center, Inc.
A solid foundation is the building block for a child's future
|The Occupational Therapy Center, Inc. (OTC), founded in 1981 by Marietta Maxey, OTR, is the premier
occupational therapy center for pediatrics in southeast Texas and specializes in the treatment of children and
adolescents with Sensory Integration Dysfunction. This dysfunction is the foundation for many of the difficulties
experienced by children. Mrs. Maxey's philosophy continues today in order to provide the best occupational
therapy by the most qualified and caring therapists.
|The OTC offers a long history of clinical excellence in diagnostic and family-centered therapeutic services along
with consultations for children from ages birth through adolescence. We were the first to bring the Sensory
Integration approach to children in southeast Texas.
The staff of the OTC has over 50 years of experience in occupational therapy with children and in Ayres
Sensory Integration® (ASI). In 1983, the OTC was involved in the development of the Sensory Integration and
Praxis Tests under the direction of Dr. Jean Ayres.
Our therapists continually attend and teach inservices/seminars which keep them in the forefront of this
advanced specialization area. They often are requested to lecture all over the USA in addition to evaluating and
treating children from all over the world.
