I have been a pediatric Occupational Therapist for 20 years, working in both school district and early intervention.
I am a big fan of using whatever works. I don't like to limit myself to a specific therapeutic framework, but I absolutely think that therapy should be fun, or kids won't do it, and they will not do their best.
My honors come when a student achieves something that we have been working hard on for a long time. It also happens when I give a quick solution to a teacher or parent, and it changes how the child is able to function.
I have a BS in Occupational Therapy from Loma Linda University.
I work with all levels of disability.
