Linda Velwest, OTR/L

Linda has been an occupational therapist working with young children in Jersey City for many years. She is passionate about joyfully helping children and families progress and enjoy life.  She has studied Greenspan's DIR approach. She believes in working with children and families at their own level and, through enjoyable activities, gently providing them the opportunity achieve the goals they have for themselves.  She utilizes sensory activities, movement, games and toys in a program to make the child feel comfortable and want to move forward in their life.  Learning and improving are impossible if the child or adult is feeling pressured and unhappy.  Even very young children can express their preferences and these preferences should be honored as they progress developmentally.   Linda is delighted to work with parents and caregivers so they can carry over therapeutic interactions with their child during day to day life.  Linda is certified in teaching Autism Movement Therapy classes and is currently offering classes in Jersey City.
