Claudia Meyer, OTR has been an occupational therapist for 40+ years. Her practice has evolved to addressing an individual’s function from the “bottom-up” utilizing a sensory-based approach. As trauma can be a complicating factor, this approach has led to positive outcomes and functional supports and growth for individual’s and their caregivers. Claudia has advanced certification in sensory-based interventions and was most recently certified in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics by Dr. Bruce Perry which defines brain systems also using a “bottom up” approach to inform practice. Sensory provides a door to better manage an individual’s behavior through thoughtful observation of how their state supports or diminishes function in their daily routine. Sensory supports lead to regulation, engagement, and participation across daily living environments.
