About the Teacher Amie Anci, OTR/L

Occupational therapy is a health profession concerned with how individuals perform tasks and function in their roles.  In a school a child's occupation is to be a student, play, and complete basic self care tasks.  Through the use of purposeful activities occupational therapists help enhance a student's ability to be successful in the learning environment.

As an occupational therapist I work closely with staff members to assist students in achieving goals such as improving fine motor coordination, visual-motor integration, bilateral integration, strength, endurance, visual perception, ocular motor skills, and sensory integration.  I work collaboratively with teachers to incorporate aspects of the curriculum into my treatment sessions and provide them with strategies to maximize each student's potential in the classroom setting.  

Parents also play an important role in a child's occupational therapy program.  It is imperative that children who receive occupational therapy services not only participate in therapy sessions in school, but reinforce skills at home.  Parents are always welcomed and encouraged to meet with me to discuss progress and learn activities for use in the home environment.  Please feel free to contact me at your child's school to make an appointment to review the occupational therapy program and learn fun activities to complete at home.

I have always enjoyed working with children and love watching them grow and reach their goals through therapy.  I am thankful for having such a wonderful profession and look forward to many more years working as an occupational therapist.
