Occupational Therapist

Erin Clarelli is a registered and licensed pediatric occupational therapist. Her mission within her practice is to build supportive relationships with all children she works with to guide them in discovering their true potential and innate goodness. She is extremely passionate about inclusion for all children, holistic focused approach to therapy, and sensory processing. In her free time she enjoys yoga, being outdoors, and spending time with her husband and 3 fur babies. At CMP, she works with each staff member to observe and brainstorm together the best possible ways to support students in the following areas:

  • Sensory processing and the impact it has on emotional regulation, attention, social interactions, and activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Fine motor skill development (grasp, coloring, cutting, crafting, opening containers, managing clothing)
  • Gross motor skill development (climbing, playing, running, sports, navigating the environment)
  • Visual motor and perceptual skill development (puzzles, letter reversals, hand-eye coordination)
  • Feeding (picky eating and the muscles/coordination required for feeding)
  • Emotional regulation and development of emotional intelligence
  • Social participation

Teacher Testimonials

“Occupational therapy has been amazing for understanding where children are and why they might do certain things. I have learned so much about behaviors that used to perplex me, like why some children suddenly fly out of their seat and crash to the floor while eating lunch. Or why a child seeks wrestling, pushing or dog piling with friends. I had never even heard of the proprioceptive sense!”

-Miss Jessica

 

“The Occupational Therapist was able to help me look at the child’s behavior from a different outside lens and offer numerous tips, tricks, and solutions to help. She also is great at keeping open communication between parents, teachers, admin so everyone remains on the same page and can work as a team towards a successful solution. “

-Miss Britney
