About Allison

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, and went on to get a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Kansas Medical Center. As soon as I graduated I began building my caseload by contracting with the state of Missouri infant and toddler program. Over the last 10 years I have worked with the infant and toddler program as well as private pay cases with children up to 15 years old. I work with families on practical ways to make positive changes to their lives. I provide hands on direct therapy as well as parent education and consultation. Therapy is individualized to each child and family's specific needs. I prefer to start out with direct in home services and decrease to face to face consultation or internet-based consultation via Skype.

Thank you to one of the families I work with in early intervention to let me know about these! These books are perfect for little ones! Better than board books! You can’t tear them, eat them, or destroy them even if you try!

Brickyard Building Toys Amazon

Awesome preschool building blocks STEM toys for kids! Great way to incorporate using a tool to play and manipulate toys. Also, really works on using two hands to play and strengthen those bilateral coordination skills for brain development!

Warmies: Microwavable Lavender Scented Stuffed Animals on Amazon

I just recently found these! You can place these in the microwave, and it provides some gentle heat for soothing comfort for kids. The one I saw was also slightly weighted due to the filling inside. I’m not sure if this one is weighted, but I would guess that it is too! It is filled with specially treated millet grains and dried lavender flower.

Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog

Amazon Item: Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog. This toy is great for preschool aged kids! Build fine motor skills by placing the pegs in the holes of the hedgehog. Very cute and fun also! Have them place the pegs into the holes, talk about the colors, and remove the pegs from the hedgehog to clean up!
