Occupational Therapist

Tell us a little about your approach to early intervention:

I like to provide early intervention Occupational Therapy Services using a Neurodevelopmental play-based model designed to engage children to move through typical developmental patterns to enhance motor development.  Children and parents are motivated by fun play-based activities and are more apt to follow through with strategies when activities are modeled and successful. Parents feel empowered when they are a included as part of their child’s early intervention team.
