Growing Healthy Children Therapy Services, Inc. was founded in 2008 by Robyn Chu, an occupational therapist, and her husband, JD Chu, a physical therapist. What once was a small home-based business has blossomed into something much bigger than we could have ever dreamed! Incredible therapists from across the country have joined our team!


 


Robyn Chu, MOT, OTR/L

Robyn earned her undergraduate degree in psychology with a biological emphasis from the University of California at Davis.  During that time, she worked with children with special needs in a variety of jobs, as a swim lesson instructor, coach, nanny, and instructional assistant for an applied behavior analysis program for children with autism.  Robyn continued on in her education obtaining her master's degree in occupational therapy from Samuel Merritt College in Oakland, CA in 2005. Her work experience includes Shriners Hospital in Sacramento and the El Dorado County Office of Education as an Occupational Therapist and then the Lead Occupational Therapist.  Robyn completed both the Level 1 and 2 intensive mentorship programs through the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation in Colorado and has been successfully treating SPD for the last three years using the techniques and research taught through the SPD Foundation.
