Skilled & Artful Therapist
Karla is a skilled and artful therapist. I have witnessed her ability to adapt and deliver quality therapy treatments to students in a way that was meaningful and beneficial to each one. She was able to accurately determine a student's needs and develop realistic and achievable goals. If a student's progress seemed to be lagging, Karla was diligent in searching for new information and treatments to apply in order to help that student move beyond the barrier and meet their goals. Karla was able to clearly convey in writing and in person, a student's abilities, strengths, and needs to professionals and non-professionals alike, allowing parents and professionals to understand the child's potential through occupational therapy.
