What Clients Are Saying About Our Pediatric Therapy Services

Happy Family Reviews
We owe so much to Tumble N'Dots. Last year our daughter, then 2, started dropping foods, refusing to eat, and wound up in the hospital for a severe food aversion. At the time she would only eat fruit snacks and infant puffs. Desperate, we reached out to Tumble and got set up with food therapy with Lichelle. Here we are a year later and our daughter is thriving and eating over 25 different foods. Lichelle's innovation and dedication got us here. The connection she formed with our daughter was almost instantaneous, and our little one is not quick to trust. We are so grateful to have found this program. The owner, Avital, is so knowledgeable and kind, it's a great staff. Really cannot say enough good things. Thanks Tumble N' Dots!
Tumble N Dot's has really helped bring a sense of calm back into our famiy's life. Truly. I have three boys and by the time my middle child was three, he started showing early signs of having difficulties in school. He simply was not interested and had a hard time sitting through circle-time and participating in any group-related activity. I reached out to Avital and she suggested trying out their social group they offered at the time for his age group. Sure enough, over time we noticed small yet significant changes in his ability to focus and cooperate at school. He is now in TK and doing great. He has since moved on from group sessions and still attends once every other week with Ms. Christina, whom we both love. My son trusts her and has really opened up because of all the support and patience she's provided him with. The bond they've formed is truly special and one of the many reasons why we love Tumble N' Dots. I recently started my youngest (3 years) in the curious caterpillars social play-based therapy group, and already, within three weeks we see growth and attitude shifts. He's also speech-delayed, the OT's are aware, they work extra hard developing that area with him as well. At the end of each session, parents receive a detailed description of all their little one worked on, and always bring home a fun craft they worked on together! Avital, Christina, Natalie, Angeline and everyone else at Tumble N' Dots are incredible! We are so lucky and blessed to have found them, their support and care has really gotten our family through some challenging times! We highly recommend them if you are considering therapy for your child! You will find all you're looking for and then some !
My daughter has been attending tumble and dots for over a year now . When we first began attending my daughter was simply there for speech. We began to notice significant delays and they recommended my daughter to a neurologist . It was there that we found my daughter was Autistic . From there we signed her up for the full time time program . She has excelled so much! She use to be so uncomfortable and irritable all of the time . With Tumble n Dots she completely came out of her shell . She seems to enjoy life so much now and attends school everyday with a smile on her face . She also has begun to be much more verbal . When she started she did not talk at all. I'm so grateful for the amazing staff and all of the great things they have done for my daughter . I know they truly care for my daughter , which can be so hard to find when you have any child but even more so with a child with special needs . I highly recommend this group!
Tumble and Dots is amazing. It's so hard to find therapy that isn't ABA or ABA informer and my boys do not respond well to behavioralist tactics. They have been wonderful for my children and they have steadily been making gains and growing and I know Tumble and Dots is effective. I also love that they sometimes have events you can sign up for --we are doing a day camp now and my niece and nephew loved participating in the Halloween event there.
We brought our child (my grandson) to TUMBLE N DOTS therapeutic learning program, and it is the absolute best thing ever for a child that has developmental needs, or if they're developing their speech and language and you want them in a academic environment. Ms Avital is a visionary that anticipates the needs of both the children and parents! We are so happy to find the perfect place where there is a positive motivating environment. And his instructors Ms Angelina and Ms Adrienne are professional, friendly, warm and welcoming! If you are looking for an academic setting that is also therapeutic for your child that has speech delay, developmental delay or any kind, of developmental challenges, including ASD this is a safe, happy and healthy place for your child to prepare for K thru 8 grade. And it is not a public school with a ridged environment. Ms Avital's Tumble N' Dots is a fabulous place. (They have everything including zip lining in the building)! IT'S SIMPLY AMAZING!!
I came to Tumble and Dots feeling pretty desperate. My daughter was having trouble with emotional regulation, she had sensory issues impacting her ability to get ready in the morning, and she was having trouble eating due to anxiety. They were so amazing to work with that we didn't even stay long. They worked through her clothing sensory issues very fast. They helped her with learning how to manage her big feelings in just a few sessions. Our house went from complete chaos to calm in just a couple of months. I wouldn't hesitate to go back if I needed more help and I also highly recommend. Thanks T&D!
My son has been enrolled in the Tumble and Learn program since September and I cannot express how impressed I am with the program. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable, caring, and attentive to the needs of each child. I know my son is in good hands while he's there in class! I know they truly care about the well-being of my kiddo. My son has made remarkable progress in his social skills, communication, and sensory processing under their guidance. He also loves going and always has a blast while he's there. The facilities are well-maintained, clean, and child-friendly, with an array of engaging activities that stimulate creativity and learning. The curriculum is well-structured, with a balance of play-based and structured learning activities that cater to each child's individual needs. I appreciate how the program fosters a sense of community, where parents are regularly updated on their child's progress and involved in their child's development. I highly recommend the Tumble and Learn program to any parent looking for a nurturing and supportive environment for their child. The summer camp at Tumble and Dots is also equally amazing! 10/10 would highly recommend!
I’m so thankful I found the Tumble n’ Dots team. My son is enrolled in Tumble and Learn program and in individual speech therapy lessons. It has only been 3 months and we have seen tremendous progress. He has become very social, confident, respectful and empathetic. His motor and language skills have exploded. When we do activities during the weekends I’m impressed at how fearless he has become. Avital, Angeline and Christina are amazing! They are a tremendous support for our family and we feel blessed to have our son enrolled in their program!
The best feeding therapy program in Orange County. The team is amazing and helped us tremendously with both kids. Very professional and highly recommended.
My 3.5 year old has been going to Tumble and Dots for somewhere around a year and half now! He has sensory processing sensitivities that were making it hard for us to live our daily lives. We found Tumble N Dots after going to a couple other clinics and feeling so defeated. I cannot speak more highly of everyone in this place. I trust them wholeheartedly. My son is a covid kid and they were the first people I ever left him with (other than my husband). They care so deeply for the wellbeing of the children and families that are apart of the clinic. Avital and all her therapists are incredible! I've cried in Avital's arms when I was overwhelmed and my son has seen several therapists there. He currently sees Avital and Angeline several times a week and he has never been happier or thrived more! We are so grateful for Tumble and Dots!!!
I’ve been taking my son to Tumble N’ Dots for about 18 months and I can’t even describe his improvement. Avital made a huge progress with him, one we couldn’t even imagine that will happen at such short period of time. He loves going to meet Avital and he doesn’t feel like it’s a “therapeutic session”. The team is highly professional, kind and helpful!
We took our daughter to Tumble N' Dots for a feeding therapy evaluation and were impressed immediately by the professionalism, attention to details and the approach taken by the OT, Ms Lichelle Fernando, and the team. We were able to see noticeable improvements with our daughter within couple of sessions and have seen significant improvements with each subsequent session. The interactive and gentle approach they are taking makes it an activity that our daughter looks forward to attending. With realistic and practical instructions given to us as parents by Ms Lichelle, we've been able to help our daughter continue her exercises at home with ease. We highly recommend Lichelle and Tumble N' Dots!
Our son has had feeding issues since he started solids and we were at a loss for what to do. Our pediatrician recommended that we start OT for him. Our son has been in love with Kelly since the moment he met her. In a matter of months, he's made huge strides in eating, has tried a number of new foods that I could never get him to eat on my own, and is showing an interest in food that I never imagined was possible. Kelly is extremely patient and provides substantive feedback after each session that allows us to continue the therapy at home. On top of that, Avital and the rest of the crew have always been so accommodating when our son has been sick or we've had schedule changes. In short, I highly recommend this place.
Wonderful place for my son with severe autism. Avital has helped him so much. She is very attentive to his needs. We have been coming to Tumble N Dots for over a year. We took a break during Covid but came back after. My son was so happy to see Avital and the staff.
The most amazing place for kids! My 5 years old son had some difficulty behaviors that I didn’t know how to help him. I heard about this place from a good friend and I’m so happy!! I saw a change after 3 sessions with Avital ! Finally he is happier and got confidence. This is a very special and amazing place
This clinic has done wonders for our lil one with Autism level 2. Their curriculum and commitment by far is the best compared to all the other clinics we've been. They never give up and they find ways to help encourage your child to engage. In such a short amount of time we've seen how hard their team works with our child and we wouldn't trade it for anything. Although Tumble N Dots specialize in OT they also partner with ST to help our munchkin with her speech difficulties. We love Tumble N Dots and we will be forever grateful for all that they've done in helping our child flourish. I personally feel emotional writing this because we found them during a time wherein other clinics and therapist were unable to support our child. They were heaven sent during a very difficult time. Thank you for never giving up and for being there for our family. We wish Ms. Avital and her team nothing but the very best! We love you guys.
We have been coming here for almost a year and it is always a preferred activity for our boys. It regulates their bodies and emotions and we can see a shift in behavior during session. The entire staff is compassionate and kind and has all of the resources to deal with whatever is happening and we have 100% confidence in the team. Tumble N Dots adds a tremendous value to our whole family.
My 8 years old son with ADHD has been coming to Tumble N' Dots for the past 7 months. We were seen at a different clinic before coming here but didn't feel like we're progressing anywhere. His progress is amazing in the past months. His school teachers also notice his progress. We are very happy!
Avital is the best pediatric OT I have ever met. My kids all benefited tremendously from her vast experience and knowledge. She is passionate and understanding, loving and caring, and explains to the parents about the treatment process and goals. My kids love coming here!
As a mom to a beautiful nine-year-old autistic boy, I highly recommend the OT services at Tumble n’ Dots. We’ve been going to Avital and Danielle for over a year and have found them to be some of the best OT’s in the business!! I also feel incredibly safe from Covid as they do a wonderful job of cleaning, sanitizing and ensuring that everyone wears a mask while consistently keeping the environment very clean.
I started with Avital with my first son who's on the spectrum. Then my typical daughter started therapy and now my 19mo old son is in the hands of this amazing, talented woman. Her passion for OT and love for my children has driven them to succeed, checking off each goal one by one. I'm SO grateful to have met her. She is truly so skilled and so full of knowledge. Before my son was diagnosed I knew nothing about OT or sensory integration and just by watching their sessions I've learned so much and am able to incorporate it at home. Our goal as parents is to find trustworthy, knowledgeable people when it comes to treating our littles... but with this company you get more than that. You get passion and pure talent and a company that TRULY cares about the future of your child. They know where your child's limits are and push them to their fullest capability. It's so AMAZING to sit back as a parent and watch your babies blossom. We LOVE Tumble n Dots! Thank you Avital for making such an impact on my entire family. Forever grateful. 🙂
Avital from Tumble N' Dots is hands down the best OT you will find! Our son has improved tremendously since we started receiving services from her. She is dedicated, warm and very professional. Avital make the sessions so fun and interactive for the kids. Our son LOVES going to the clinic. We highly recommend her!
Avital Shuster has been working with our son for a year, & words cannot do justice for how great our experience has been. If you have a child that needs any sensory development assistance, this is the place & she is a wonderful Occupational Therapist. Of all his activities, going to a session with Avital is his absolute favorite. The growth & development he has gone through these past months is amazing! From last Oct to now, he is having a completely different experience in school (turned a 180!) & also so much better at home. Hands down one of the best decision we have made as parents so far. All that being said we have to give credit to Mrs. Danielle Kelso, Kindergarten Teacher at Salem Lutheran in Orange, for suggesting we look into a sensory assessment. So grateful that we are experiencing success!
We came to Tumble N' Dots with my son for private OT sessions. Avital was great with him. She was so professional, playful, and had tons of patience for him. We also got to do a few community sessions at my son's school and at the park, to help him generalize his skills. Avital was always happy and available to consult with my son's teachers and to answer any questions I have.
Avital is amazing. Her support and care is truly remarkable. We feel so lucky and blessed that we found her. She truly wants each child to succeed and goes above and beyond. The clinic looks like a big playground with loads of swings and equipment. I love it!
Avital was helping my daughter with occupational therapy and we had a great experience not only with motor skills improvement but also in meeting an amazing person with plenty of experience and patience.
The best OT ever! My son coming here its like heaven for him!! Avital the owner super professional, she loves kids ands have so much patience. In two visits my son start to walk and got stronger, she is always available for any question and always smile. This is just a blessing for us. Highly recommend!
