Michele is a one-of a-kind occupational therapist. She is that rare clinical expert with a delightful personality. She has comprehensive knowledge of the field and takes the time to truly understand your child. She also goes beyond the call of duty to coach parents, and involve teachers and other professionals to build a cohesive treatment plan. She has a unique understanding of sensory processing disorder, and works closely with Lucy Miller, one of the preeminent professionals in the field. Last but far from least, she has a sweet and playful manner, which has made her much loved by our child and us.
We have seen incredible improvements with M since starting your program (Connect Experience Write handwriting program co-developed by Owner, Michele Parkins). His pencil grip has improved tremendously as has the pressure he puts on the paper. His letters are written so much clearer and more accurately. He has also started to have an increased understanding for the sounds that the letters are making. He has started to sound out words and really begun to read. We are blown away with the difference in his understanding of letters, what they look like, how to write them and what they mean.
We appreciate you and all your hard work tremendously.
