    Welcome to Occupational Therapy (OT)!!
    I have been an OT for the Wappingers CSD since 2008 and I love what I do! I work with students who have a wide variety of learning challenges and also work very close with the teachers and staff of Vassar Rd. Elementary School.  My goal for my students is to learn strategies to improve their fine motor (i.e. writing, coloring, cutting), visual perceptual (i.e. copying from the board, matching), sensory processing (i.e. following directions, attending to task), and self-help (i.e. dressing, organization, managing their desk or backpack) skills, to name a few. 
    The easiest way to reach me is through email.  If you call the main office # above, please leave a message and I will return it as soon as possible.
    While school is not in session, please refer to the resources listed here on my website for home learning activities and strategies. If you have specific questions regarding your child, please email me. 
    Stay well!
