Katie Beard

B.Occ.Thy (Hons)

Katie believes that Occupational Therapists are professional problem-solvers, and being able to help people problem-solve through difficult situations is extremely rewarding for her.  She became an OT because she was enthusiastic about a career that is challenging, creative and involve helping people.

Katie thrives on making families feel heard and understood, and seeing their children achieve their goals. Her special areas of interest include supporting children transitioning to school, children with Autism, ADHD and ODD, social skill development, visual perception development, emotional regulation and self-care (toileting).
