After Graduation~ Let's Talk About Transitioning

Graduating from high school is a huge step for any child, never mind those with unique needs. What happens when your kid is the kid who was always on the "cusp" or "borderline?" Not severe enough for the 18-21 yr. old program, but not ready to navigate this world without support. If this sounds like your child, then chances are you struggled just like me. Let's talk about how I may be able to help you navigate the next phase of your child's life. I am here to help you with this complicated process. There's a lot to learn and it never ends!

Hi! I'm an occupational therapy professional with 15 years of experience servicing children ages 3-21 in the public school system. My specializations include: assistive technology, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, although I service children with a variety of special needs and disabilities. My real connection into pediatrics began after we adopted our daughter from South Korea in 2001. She came to us with unique needs at about 1 1/2 yrs old (she's now 21) and I've been advocating for her ever since. I have years of experience attending PPT's and 504 meetings while wearing two hats: one of a parent advocating for her child and one as a professional advocating for students. My passion is being able to help children navigate their world by learning through play using easily accessible and inexpensive items (I love the Dollar Store!) or out in nature. By creating safe and meaningful therapeutic activities while thinking "out of the box" helps keep it fun and engaging! I strive to help children become more independent in all areas of their life, from Preschool to High School, and transition skills into the community. Lets put the "Fun" in "Function" together!
