We believe your child deserves:

  • Effective, evidence-based occupational therapy services
  • A plan tailored to your child’s vision and goals
  • An occupational therapist who will always listen, strongly advocate, and empower your child with knowledge
  • To always be our top priority

Let’s partner up.  We will empower, guide, and champion your child in their transformative journey towards a higher level of health and well-being, improved life satisfaction, and increased joy and happiness.

Why Us?

VedaOT is not a “Big Box” occupational therapy services with cookie cutter approaches to helping your child.  We are creative problem solvers, mentors, coaches, and advocates that recognize you and your child are the boss.  We will work tirelessly to help you dream big, craft courageous goals, and plan for a brighter future for your child.  We know everyone is unique, has strengths, experiences challenges, and desires a good life.  We will honor your child’s individuality, focus on their strengths, and help them pursue goals, while equipping them with the knowledge to overcome life’s challenges.

I’m Veda Collmer, OTR/L

Veda Collmer imageDown line icon

I am an occupational therapist and a healthcare lawyer with more than twenty years of experience helping people achieve a quality life.  I believe that we, as occupational therapists, have an ethical obligation to provide clients with quality, effective, evidence-based services that are individualized and meaningful to them.  Throughout my years of practice in occupational therapy and law, I discovered the existing medical and educational models do not address the 360-degree version of autistic people; therefore, failing to equip them with skills for developing a fulfilling life.  

Veda means knowledge and wisdom, powerful concepts that embolden the individual to fulfill dreams and goals. VedaOT’s mission serves to empower autistic people with the wisdom and knowledge to pursue a life rich with meaning and purpose.  Wisdom means learning how to build on one’s strengths, as well as find the right supports, to succeed in any situation.  Knowledge means learning about oneself to identify interests and ambitions for a bright future.  Knowledge and wisdom lead to self-determination, autonomy, and self-advocacy for a rewarding life.  

VedaOT occupational therapists offer customized, personalized services to support your child in life.  We think outside the box to help guide you and your child to a path for a fulfilling future.  This means helping identify meaningful goals, as well implementing a plan for achieving those goals.  We will put in the hard work to help you find the right supports for your child in all aspects of their life.  We will coach you and your child on self-advocacy and we will mentor your child in exploring what the future holds for them.
