Our Path To SPACE Therapy & Gym
Vanessa and Michelle met in 2004 while working for the Bridges Program at Texas Children’s Hospital. Here, they were immersed in training by Dr. Serena Wieder, PhD in the DIR®/Floortime™ Model and worked together as team leads until Bridges closed in 2011.
After years of training from different states over teleconferencing, Vanessa and Michelle had the opportunity to spend time with Dr Serena Wieder along with the rest of their Bridges colleagues.
After starting their own families and ten years of pediatric practice, Michelle and Vanessa created Kids Connect OT (KCOT) and Family First Speech (FFST) in 2014.
In Fall 2014 we hosted an Open House to celebrate the establishment of clinics that would maintain the DIR®/Floortime™ model as a guiding influence while integrating other discipline specific interventions.
In the summer of 2018, we were excited to learn we had been accepted to the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program!
After months of hard work and collaboration with an amazing Cohort 23, and support from our staff and families, we graduated the Goldman Sach’s Program in December 2018!
In January of 2019, Amy Rodriquez, BCBA joined as our ABA Program Director! She has already become a leading member of our team, sharing collaborative ideas with our speech, OT’s and families.

On April 2, 2019 our dedicated staff Lit It Up Blue for World Autism Awareness Day, a cause that is near and dear to our hearts.
Using our past 19 years of experience, we enjoyed brainstorming ideas with Merge Architects to make our vision a reality.
We are highly anticipating the opening of our clinic and multi-level indoor gym in the Fall of 2019. Our customized SPACE will meet the specific needs of our families.
We cannot wait to welcome families through our front doors at SPACE Therapy & Gym!
