Skills on the Hill, LLC (SOTH) was developed in 2002 by Kristen Masci to serve the growing need for pediatric based occupational therapy services in the Capitol Hill area. Initially, all services were provided on a private basis in several Capitol Hill neighborhood schools and homes. Relationships with these neighborhood schools further developed and Skills on the Hill became a resource for both school staff and parents.
SOTH’s first clinic opened its doors in the spring of 2003. Suspended equipment was added in order to cater to children who experience sensory processing difficulties. Shortly thereafter, SOTH began providing school-based services at several charter schools in Washington, DC and is currently servicing students in 16 schools. In the summer of 2012, SOTH expanded to add a second clinic in Arlington, Virginia to widen their ability to serve families in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. In March, 2013, SOTH became a provider with the Strong Start DC Early Intervention Program and began providing early intervention based therapy services within the community.
