Abby Gitlin, MS, OTR/L
A Certified and NYS licensed Occupational Therapist with many years of experience working with children of varying developmental levels, Abby Gitlin is certified to teach handwriting programs, including Handwriting Without Tears (HWT) and Preventing Academic Failure (PAF). Gitlin is very excited to bring her private Occupational Therapy practice to Northern Westchester. With her experience and knowledge, Gitlinís goal is to develop each childís full academic potential. Years of experience working both privately as well as in the school settings, she has built a strong knowledge base of what is necessary to support the individual child, and how OT can help with so many facets of a childís daily life. Through participation in sensory experiences that enable appropriate motoric responses, children develop necessary sensory skills. They also develop fine motor skills through activities that activate and strengthen the muscles of the hand and upper extremity. Improve your childís handwriting as he has fun. Engaging drills and practices help your child work on a necessary foundational skill.
