Hi! I am Hiral.

I am your creativity specialist & Occupational Therapist by profession. I am passionate about creating activities and keeping kids busy with “something” productive and I am a strong believer of “no screens parenting” 

I am  A mother of a toddler, Mahi; and a pediatric occupational therapist with more than 12 years of experience working with children in both the US and India.

I am a wife, and Mumma to two little furbabies- Appy & Fluffy.

Fun Fact: Occupational Therapy is something that covers each and every area of our daily lives, and so, I truly struggle a lot having doing one type of work all day. I like to be everywhere, and so you can call me a “Perfectly messed up OT- Mom!”. 

 

 

 

As a student in OT School,  I observed my mentor working with a child. The joy that the child’s mother found in his tiny victories inspired me and set the stage for my career. I knew then and there that I was meant to work with children. I am very much passionate about treating children using a variety of sensory tools and techniques. I have successfully treated children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and children with handwriting difficulties.

I also help my mom-friends to get an understanding about age-appropriate milestones and developmentally correct activities to do with their kids. 

Pediatric Occupational Therapy is my expertise and I love treating kids from birth to 3 years of age. 

OT Fact: I like to keep myself all over the OT world, and being OT is my sole passion.



MY WHY! 

I frequently receive calls and messages from busy parents asking what they can do with their child at home. Parents want to give their child every opportunity to thrive – though for some the internet is providing overwhelming ideas of activities and for some, they just trust someone who is professional. To solve this problem, I thought to merge professional information with age-appropriate activity ideas and pick the best suitable materials for children from 0-3 years age. And, it was the origin of OT Park.

To meet the needs of these busy and extraordinary parents OT Park Boxes will:

  • Provide all required supplies for activities. Thus, saving busy parents the stress and time for shopping.
  • Include all pertinent information in one helpful activity guide. No more googling required!
  • Invite and equip parents to be their own child’s therapist, teacher, and guide.
  • Be budget-friendly and accessible to everyone.
  • Be delivered directly to your doorstep!

 

 

 

 

My Qualifications:

  • Doctorate of Occupational Therapy, University of St Augustine, Florida, USA. 
  • Sensory Integration Mentorship Level 1 by Stars Institute, USA
  • Bachelor’s of Occupational Therapy, Gujarat, India.
  • Handwriting Without Tears Certified, USA
  • Keyboarding Without Tears Certified, USA
  • Zones of Regulation
  • NDT
  • Hand Rehabilitation Workshop attendee.
  • Pediatrics Ergonomics workshop attendee.
  • Evidence-based Research practitioner. 

 

 

 

Fun Fact: I love Disney! 

My family is my first priority. I am what I am today, only because of my family. And we are a traveler family We love to experience different cultures around the world and make a note in our secret diary about “where we will settle down after 50!” 

Apart from my subscription box and telehealth services, I like to cook, go for a walk with my dogs and travel the world. In my free time I read books, these days I prefer iBooks or Kindle to keep a copy with me everywhere I go. I also love to listen to podcasts to grow my knowledge in a variety of topics. 

Serious Fact: I love my both puppies – Appy & Fluffy. They are my go-to people whenever I need peace, security, trust, and calmness because I do feel “overwhelmed” and I also sometimes “act out!”. 

I will love you to start your fabulous creativity journey with me! I am sure I will amaze you every month with great activity ideas and your kid/s will lessen their screen-times.

Fact: And I am really good at keeping My promise!
