My experience includes Beckman Oral Motor (providing oral input to improve oral motor control and decrease sensitivity), iLs (a listening program for improving auditory processing, balance, motor planning/coordination, and a host of additional sensory/motor issues, research Integrative Listening Systems for more), Astronaut Training ( assists in balance, oculo motor control, and improved tolerance of movement), background in working with children who have experienced trauma/neglect, children who have developmental delays, children with cerebral palsy, and children with genetic disorders affecting growth and development.
