Zane State College (Occupational Therapy)
My name is Brooke and I am an occupational therapy practitioner in the school setting. I mainly work with children with fine motor and sensory difficulties, I often work on handwriting with children as well as motor coordination skills, bilateral hand skills, etc. I have worked with children of all ages up to adults, from 3-22 years old. I have worked in the school systems for 3 school calendar years.
I take pride in seeing children make progress and learning new skills as well as achieving goals. I typically take a multi sensory approach when working with children in order to learn new skills in a variety of ways. I can incorporate other skills besides the ones listed above with worksheets, crafts, and General activities. I would love to have the opportunity to work with your child and help them become successful learning new skills. Hi,

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
As an Occupational Therapy Assistant, I currently work with children with ADHD/ADD, as well as other diagnoses. I am trained in sensory integration techniques to help kids with attention disorders be more successful in the classroom. I am able to do this by giving them sensory input, such as deep pressure, vestibular or proprioceptive inputs, etc.; and then engaging them in an non-preferred activity. The activity can be anything that may be difficult to them, but I normally introduce academic lesson plans for math, writing, etc.
A large part of my caseload consists of children with ASD. I am a certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and work with special needs children on a daily basis I am able to use a multi sensory approach to draw children in that are on the spectrum into an activity and eventually allow them to learn new skills. I do this by incorporating an activity that they enjoy, working on a non preferred task, then incorporating a new enticing activity that they will enjoy. I also incorporate a variety of sensory inputs for calming and arousal of the sensory systems, in order to be more successful in completing the activities. I have extensive knowledge on how to incorporate difficult tasks for these children in a meaningful and purposeful manner, as well as handling the behaviors that may be present with these children.
I am occupational therapy assistant and I currently work with preschool, kindergarten, and 1st graders. Over the last 3 years, I have worked with a wide range of children from preschool to high school, but I prefer to work with younger children. I am able to get on their level and incorporate things that are important to them within my lesson plans. I mainly work with children with fine motor and sensory difficulties, I often work on handwriting with children as well as motor coordination skills, bilateral hand skills, etc.
I am an Occupational Therapy Assistant and work in the school setting. I work on handwriting on a daily basis with most children that are on my caseload. I have the knowledge to teach handwriting in a variety of different ways and take a multi sensory approach to teach it. I incorporate all sensory systems when teaching handwriting instead of just incorporating fine motor skills.
