Our Occupational Therapy Department founder and director, Dorie Pearson, OTR, ADHD-CCSP, has 30+ years of experience working in pediatrics. Since becoming an ADHD-Certified Specialist, she has been dedicated to developing a program for the increasing population of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 


OTs specialize in enabling individuals to perform meaningful tasks and occupations. ADHD affects many aspects of children’s lives such as academic performance, home routines, task initiation, physical coordination, and social skills. OT can help through applying knowledge in cognitive processes, behavioral science, anatomy, and sensory processing.
