PEDIATRIC OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY
Pediatric OT works on helping children develop the skills they need to reach their full potential as they grow and mature. Physical impairments, developmental delays, injuries and other issues can negatively affect a child’s ability to perform everyday tasks and evolve through successive stages of social, cognitive, emotional and motor development.
A BIT ABOUT ME
Lindsay has been an occupational therapist since 2009. She began her career working with the geriatric population where she was passionate about facilitating their independence and safety with daily activities for their return to home after a skilled nursing stay. When Lindsay and her husband relocated to Arizona in 2015 she transitioned to pediatric occupational therapy working in the school setting. She has worked with the pediatric population for 7 years with her focus on fine motor skills, visual perceptual skills, sensory motor integration, and more. She is currently working towards her certification in Dr. Bruce Perry’s, Neurosequential Model of Education (NME). NME focuses on assessing children’s neurological needs due to trauma and identifies interventions to mitigate negative affects in children’s daily activities.
I offer occupational therapy evaluation and treatment primarily for children ages 0-18 years of age who present with fine motor, gross motor, sensorimotor, sensory regulation, visual motor, visual perceptual, neuromuscular and trauma-based concerns. In addition, I work closely with parents, caregivers, teachers and other therapists to best serve the needs of each child.
