ALEX’S EARLY INTERVENTION REWARD:
“I find working in the Early Intervention setting to be incredibly rewarding. I have a passion for working with young children and have found that occupational therapy can do amazing things for children! From improving fine motor and play skills to sensory integration to improvement in feeding and other self-help skills. Occupational therapy can have a profound effect on a child’s life as well as the quality of life of the entire family. I love the challenge that each day provides and enjoy the opportunity to be creative and find new ways to motivate the children I treat.”
