About Brooke

Hi,

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ADD/ADHD

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.

Aspergers

I am a certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and work with special needs children on a daily basis. I have been trained to handle the behaviors that can arise when engaging a child with Aspergers in a non-preferred task. I have also been trained to use sensory input to help calm/arouse the sensory systems to help ease into transitions and non-preferred activities. In addition to the behaviors and sensory input, I am also trained in fine motor areas (handwriting, motor coordination, visual motor/perception, etc.).

Autism

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

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.

Handwriting

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.

Special Needs

I am a Occupational Therapy Assistant and I currently work with children that have special needs. I work with children with a variety of diagnoses including autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, and many more. I am trained in a variety of things within special needs such as: sensory integration, accommodations to the common core curriculum, vestibular and proprioceptive inputs, accommodations within the classroom. I have 3 years of experience working with children with special needs as well as having experience with the children being in general education classrooms and multiple handicap classrooms.
