"After 2 years of OT with OK therapists, Amy stepped in and we have seen incredible improvement in focus, attention, eye contact, and handwriting. Thank you, Amy! You are the best. Amy makes it fun and easy for kids and parents alike.”
~ Mother of 6-year-old
"My son has been doing Occupational Therapy with Amy for a year and half, and we couldn’t be happier. She developed a special bond with my son, yet made him work hard in a way that was fun. Within a couple of months, we started seeing more progress than the entire previous year. Amy was also very patient and caring with the entire family while we transitioned from home schooling to a regular classroom environment, working closely with his teachers and caretakers."
~ Tatiana Araujo, Mother of 5-year-old
"After working with Amy side by side, I can recommend her wholeheartedly. She is a creative and scholarly professional who knows what she is doing and works impeccably with her clients. I would recommend her services without hesitation and am happy to have worked with her for many years."
~ Alina, Speech Language Pathologist
"Our son Lucas was having what we thought was just behavioral concerns at school, but after starting services with Amy we learned there were others areas to improve. Now we couldn’t be happier. With Amy we are seeing those improvements week after week! The teachers at Lucas' school have definitely seen an improvement with his focus and behavior, and exercises Amy taught us have really made me feel more equipped as a parent. I feel like I am responding to my son and his challenges in ways that benefit him and give him the tools to succeed in life."
~ Rev. Juan Del Hierro, Father of 4-year-old
