About Us

Skills on the Hill is a pediatric therapy practice in Washington, D.C. and Arlington, VA that specializes in supporting and empowering children and families to climb to their fullest potential. Our occupational, speech, and physical therapists have advanced training and specialization to support the development of children from birth through high school across home, community, school, and outpatient settings. Therapy at SOTH is fun and engaging while using your child's interests and motivations as our guide.


Kristen Masci, Owner and CEO brought Skills on the Hill to life in 2002 to serve the growing need for pediatric-based therapy services in the Capitol Hill area. As relationships with neighborhood schools further developed, Skills on the Hill became a resource for both school staff and parents. SOTH’s first private clinic opened its doors in the spring of 2003 and began providing school-based services at several charter schools in Washington, DC. In the summer of 2012, SOTH expanded to add a second private clinic in Arlington, Virginia to widen our ability to serve families in the metropolitan DMV area. In March of 2013, SOTH became a provider with the Strong Start DC Early Intervention Program and began providing early intervention based therapy services both within the community and clients' homes.


With a sharpened eye for meeting the everchanging needs of families in our region, Skills on the Hill is proud to now serve a variety of children's needs through inclusive services targeting overall childhood development. With a menu of options spanning from general wellness programming, school support, and enrichment services to advanced technologies and adaptive sports activities, Skills on the Hill is excited to work with your child to build self-esteem and confidence through positive social experiences.
