Deanna has been an OT for what she calls “quite a while!” Deana has been with Interact since inception as co-owner of Interact Pediatrics. Together with Carey, they remain committed to their mission to work with children who have special needs. Deanna and Carey officially opened Interact in 2010!!
Deanna is certified in Therapeutic Listening, SOS feeding therapy, SOFFI infant feeding method, AEIOU feeding approach, and a lot of other courses-too many to mention. She is in the process of becoming a specialist in Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (currently a core in training).
Deanna loves all of our friends but is especially fond of the little littles and the very medically complex. She enjoys the challenge of figuring out exactly what each client needs to help them achieve their goals. Lately Deanna has enjoyed taking a step back from treating clients and working with our younger therapists to help the grow and expand their skills. She tells us she learns as much if not more from them as they do from her.
Deanna LOVES everything about Interact. She tells us “we have the most remarkable team! Interact is full of phenomenal therapists (occupational and speech) and it is a joy to watch them work and see the progress of all of their clients. I love that we are like family at Interact!
