TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi there! I am so excited you stopped by. A little bit about me, I have my doctorate in occupational therapy. I have been an occupational therapist since 2014 and I work with children of all different ages and abilities in a school system. I love to make my own unique therapy materials that are easy to use for teachers, therapists, children, and parents. I have used my materials with a variety of children with different disabilities including learning disabilities, dyslexia, autism, sensory processing disorder, ADD, ADHD, visual impairments, deaf/hard of hearing, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and more.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I work closely with special education and general education staff to address the needs of our students. I get my inspiration to create materials to address the individual needs of students and to create educational material for staff.
