ABOUT SUMA KIDS

ABOUT SUMA KIDS At SUMA KIDS our goal is to help build foundational skills, in a fun way, for children from birth to their teen years. SUMA KIDS, Inc. is a privately owned, certified Non-public Agency (NPA) dedicated to providing developmental pediatric services designed to enhance the lives of children and their families.

Owned and operated by Angela Dowdy, OTR/L, an Occupational Therapist with extensive pediatric experience, specializing in Ayres Sensory Integration. SUMA Kids offers in-clinic services as well as contractual service to school districts within Contra Costa, Alameda and San Juan counties including several Charter Schools and Home School organizations. Kids come to our clinic from all over the greater northern California Bay Area.

Our Concord clinic provides evaluation, treatment and consultation to children on an individual basis. Our clinic is child friendly and has been specially designed to provide children with individualized, multi-sensory experiences. Treatment incorporates sensory processing strategies, fine motor development, oral-motor sensory development and sensory processing disorder (SPD) treatment as well as affording a wide variety of movement experiences to enhance gross motor and motor planning skills.

Treatment at Suma Kids employs a play model whenever appropriate. Thus our clinic is filled with fun stuff: suspension swings, vestibular based equipment, sensory opportunities that include the squeeze machine designed by Dr. Temple Grandin, a climbing wall, quiet areas, climbing vines, lycraŽ hammocks and an abundance of games and toys. We have full spectrum lights (no fluorescents), low VOC paints & carpets and pure drinking water.
