Meet Our Staff

Our occupational therapists go through a thorough interview process, background and reference check, and job shadow other therapists prior to employment.  All new and experienced therapists are required to demonstrate clinical competency in several areas of therapeutic treatment, evaluation, and treatment planning.  Ongoing mentorship and continuing education occurs for all Skills on the Hill therapists.  

Some examples of the diagnoses/deficit areas we commonly work with are: Dyspraxia (motor planning difficulties), hypotonia (low muscle tone), coordination issues, decreased postural control and poor balance, visual problems (perception, visual motor, ocular motor) and motor weaknesses, handwriting issues resulting from perceptual/motor deficits, sensory processing difficulties (discrimination/modulation of vestibular, proprioceptive, tactile, visual, auditory input), feeding difficulties (sensory and motor related), social skill difficulties, self-regulation problems, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and executive functioning problems, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Downs Syndrome, cerebral palsy, deficits with activities of daily living (ADLs) and self-care skills.

Our therapists have received training in the following areas: Interactive Metronome (IM), Integrated Listening System (ILS), Sequential-Oral-Sensory Approach to Feeding (SOS Approach), Therapeutic Listening Program, Reflex integration, Pediatric Yoga, Social Thinking Curriculum, The Alert Program for Self-Regulation: How Does Your Engine Run?, The Zones of Regulation, Sensory Integration & Praxis Test (SIPT), Sensory Processing courses (various areas and courses), and Floortime Approach/DIR.
