Gigi's Playhouse is a nonprofit achievement center that provides free therapeutic-based, educational, career development, and family connections programming and events to individuals with Down syndrome from diagnosis through adulthood, their families, and the community. Since Gigi's Playhouse is 98% volunteer-run and 100% donor-funded, they depend on volunteers and donors to fulfill their mission of changing the way the world sees Down Syndrome.

TNOTA will be partnering with Gigi's Playhouse for volunteer opportunities and financial support throughout this year. To get involved, contact [email protected].

Find an OT/OTA

As an additional member benefit, we want to provide TNOTA members who own a clinic and/or practice that provides occupational therapy services to consumers an opportunity to advertise their clinic on our website.  By filling out the form below you are consenting to allow consumers to search and view your business contact information on our website.  Over the next month or sooner we will be adding a "Find an OT/OTA" link on our menu bar at the top of the page.  Consumers will be able to search for OTs/OTAs by zip code.  This feature is not for practices or clinics that our members work for, this is strictly for owners of clinics or practices that are TNOTA members.
