Our son has been working with Michelle for about a year to help with his handwriting and she has been great! Not only does he love going to see her, but the way she has integrated her plan with his teacher's means that we know that we are all working in a predictable and consistent way to support his writing in a way that has produced results. Through a combination of exercises and techniques we've seen a real improvement in his handwriting and beyond that, a real interest in writing. Before, writing was uncomfortable and unpleasant. Now, he is starting to incorporate writing into free play, something he never would have done before, and that, to us, is the real breakthrough. Michelle has done this with caring, warmth, insight, and enthusiasm. Michelle is clearly a qualified OT but it's her coordination with parents and teachers that make her the OT with whom you should be working.

Our son's sensory issues are challenging at home and very different from the needs he has at school. Michelle's insight helped us to understand how to help him get through challenges that just didn't make sense to us.

When I was first referred to Michelle at Pediatric Therapy Solutions, I did not know what an occupational therapist did, much less understand why my son needed to see one. From our initial meeting I have been impressed with Michelle's professionalism, dedication and skill as a therapist. She taught me as a mother that my son's sensory issues encompassed so many parts of his life teaching us how to address these issues with suggestions we could implement easily into home and school routines. I began to see improvement with my son's fine and gross motor skills very quickly after therapy began. Michelle soon understood what made my son tick and found strategies that made occupational therapy fun for him at each session. He looks forward to his sessions with Michelle and his improvement has been dramatic.
Michelle has been a wonderful resource to me as a parent and has taught me ways to help my son. Michelle has made a huge difference in the life of my son as well as my life. We are grateful for her and would whole heartedly recommend her services.
