Occupational Therapy Skills!



Hello families! I miss seeing all of my students faces each week! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  I have created this website as a go-to for resources and occupational therapy services. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything. I am looking foward to connecting with you! 

Distance learning has caused changes in service delivery. I will be posting different activities and resources, as well as some helpful information. I will also be offering a weekly signup for zoom sessions or phone calls. 


Letter to families: 


Dear Parents of Occupational Therapy Students,

Formal Occupational Therapy will not be possible during the COVID 19 home learning situation.  We are hoping that parents can encourage improved fine motor skills with simple daily activities. We will be generating a list of resources for families regarding age appropriate OT at- home activities. These will be posted under activities/resources tab.

Also, we are able to provide teletherapy services via a web-based platform. Are you interested in your child receiving this type of service? If so, what technology do you have access to (computer, IPAD, printer, etc.) and do you have access to internet connection?

Please respond at the most convenient time for you so we can ensure your child continues to receive services if you are interested. 

My office hours are 9 to 10am and 2-4 pm Monday through Friday. During office hours I will be responding to emails, returning phone calls or scheduling zoom/phone meetings.  You can contact me via email or phone listed below. Thank you so much and stay healthy!
