About Us

Welcome to Pediatric Therapy Associates!

Pediatric Therapy Associates is a multidisciplinary group whose focus is on developing the whole child and maximizing a child’s developmental potential. Located in Chino Hills, California, Harsha Rana, OTR/L MBA and Dr. Stephanie Pelayo decided to combine efforts after having been in separate private practices, to provide a comprehensive team of child specialists knowledgeable in evaluating the child, consulting with the family or with school and leading interventions for children with varied diagnoses and in all different stages of development.

The multi-disciplinary team includes a clinical psychologist, pediatric occupational therapist, speech and language pathologist, physical therapist and a visiting developmental pediatrician.

Pediatric Therapy Associates is certified by the State of California Department of Education as a NPA- Non-Public Agency, serving children in schools.


Pediatric Therapy Associates take a strength-based, developmental approach toward wholeness rather than a view of disability or dysfunction. Current research in the field of neuroscience and brain neuroplasticity indicates that our brain can literally be rewired to have improved sensory integration, emotional regulation, and develop secure attachments which are necessary for functional independence and higher level critical thinking.

Therapists at Pediatric Therapy Associates receive specialized training and actively pursued advanced post-graduate training in the field of sensory integration and attachment. Using this specialized knowledge, therapists approach each child and family with an intensive and individualized focus to provide a comprehensive treatment plan that meets each child’s individual needs.

Pediatric Therapy Associates believe that a child’s sensory motor development, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual selves are interrelated and attention must be given to the whole child to maximize and develop the child’s potential to the fullest.
