Welcome to Occupational Therapy (OT)!!
I am very excited to work with my OT students for the 2018-2019 school year. This is my fourth year at Fishkill Plains but this is my 20th year at WCSD. I have 30 years of experience working with children and I look forward to utilizing what I have learned over the years with my students this school year. I work with students who have a variety of learning challenges and I collaborate very closely with my students' teachers and parents. My goal for my students is to learn strategies and generalize these strategies in the classroom in order to improve their fine motor (i.e. writing, coloring, cutting), visual motor/visual perceptual (i.e. copying from far and near text, visual sequencing, visual tracking), sensory processing (i.e. following multi-step directions, attending to task, self regulation and self modulation), and self-help (i.e. organization skills, managing their desk or backpack) skills in a fun learning environment. Feel free to contact me via email with any questions or concerns! I'm looking forward to a great 2018-2019 school year.
