Bio:

Christine is a recent transplant to NC from Queens, NY. She received her M.S. in Occupational Therapy from NYU in 2008. Having grown up in NJ she learned about and fell in love with OT while spending several summers serving as a paraprofessional in a preschool autistic program. Following graduation Christine gained further pediatric experience through working in a special education preschool, clinic, and school based settings. She is skilled at addressing delays in several areas including fine motor, visual motor, and sensory processing. In addition to autism spectrum disorders, Christine also has experience with treating developmental delays, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, and ADHD. She strives to make her sessions fun and functional through creative activities and parent involvement.
