Rebecca and I have collaborated with parents and teachers to understand a child’s learning profile, social-emotional skills, and motor and sensory needs to set the child up for success at home, at school and in the community. By utilizing a team approach, we are able to bring our skill sets together to best support the child’s entire family dynamic. Rebecca recognizes the power of building a trusting and lasting relationship with each child, no matter the diagnosis or presenting problem. Rebecca fully understands the importance of a PLAY based approach, which is a child’s main occupation and how we facilitate learning in a fun way!
