About Yifat Kedar: Specialist in Child Learning and Development

Yifat Kedar is an occupational therapist with 25+ years of experience. After years of treating adults, she spent 15 years as a pediatric OT in NJ schools and saw first-hand how school-based OT is focused on access to education. Yet children need to thrive in environments outside the classroom. Parents raved about how she went the extra mile and gave them practical techniques they could use to reinforce the OT she provided in school.

During the Covid pandemic, Yifat saw how challenging it was for parents to get the extra attention they and their children required due to overwhelmed Special Needs staff in schools and clinics. She founded True Abilities in 2020, which provides OT to kids virtually, in their homes, daycare and even in schools (after hours). Services for adults are also provided. Her approach is to make therapy engaging and fun, with methods and original games that develop skills.

As stated in her five-star online reviews:
“Ms. Yifat helped our family out in so many ways. Not only did she come in to help our little one for more than a year and half but gave us the tools on a weekly basis to push his therapy to the highest degree.” Another parent said, “She's resourceful, and her patience is endless! She took my son from being behind on his milestones, to meeting all of his milestones, to meeting milestones early! My son would cry for her when his sessions ended.”
