ABOUT

Pia Seltmann OTR/L

Pia is a pediatric occupational therapist born and raised in Germany and finished her education as an Occupational Therapist in 2002. She has been living and working in Washington, DC and the DMV area since 2009.

 

After working for many years in different settings, Pia decided to go all SENSORY! 

She started TAR Education in Motion as she noticed that often families with autistic children and children with disability struggle with implementing sensory strategies and receiving treatment in their own home environment. She can now be found in and around DC at the home of families empowering them with strategies to support their families.
