I’m a Pediatric Occupational Therapist who uses a holistic approach to working with kids. I look at the health of the child’s environment, the caregiver/child relationship, and a child’s sensory and motor systems. These three main areas can impact a child’s ability to engage with the world around them. If these systems are not balanced then we simply can not be in the just-right state for learning, where true progress happens.
