Ushma Sampat


Ushma founded World of OT, a community- based pediatric OT practice in San Francisco Bay Area in 2017 with the ultimate goal and mission to provide high impact services that equip and empower children to achieve their highest individual potential. Ushma is strongly committed to the learning, development, and recovery of children of all ages and so World of OT not only serves each child but also their whole world- parents, teachers, and other professionals! They emphasize collaboration and working in the child’s natural environment- be it at school, home or a local park. This approach to pediatric occupational therapy is highly effective and celebrated by families, and Ushma is thrilled to be sharing it with others. In 2020, Ushma launched her first online course for OTs new to the school system, to help them go from feeling uncertain and fearful, to confident and thriving in the new setting. World of OT is now an AOTA Approved Provider for continuing education and we are excited for what the future holds. On a personal note Ushma is an immigrant to the states, an internationally educated OT, mother of two boys and a dog, a loved and lucky wife, a traveller and an adventure seeker.
