Rebecca Kaufman MS, OTR/L
Rebecca holds a Masters of Science in occupational therapy from Thomas Jefferson University. She is a passionate, pediatric OT with particular interest and experience in feeding therapy and treating children with sensory and emotional regulation needs. She has received Level 1 advanced certification in sensory integration through the The Sensory Treatment And Research (STAR) Institute, the premier treatment, research and education center for children and adults with Sensory Processing Disorder.
Along with her interest in sensory processing differences, Rebecca has specialized training in the SOS approach to feeding, and completed both the introductory and mentorship courses. She draws from the CBT and desensitization approaches learned from the SOS course when treating children with sensory needs as well as particular feeding challenges. Further, she has training in the Zones of Regulation program which focuses on emotional regulation and well-being, along with experience in the Social Thinking and Handwriting Without Tears curriculums.
Rebecca has experience in treating social-emotional challenges, sensory processing disorder, fine motor delays, feeding disorders, autism, ADHD, executive functioning delays, anxiety, and chronic pain.
I believe in providing play-based, family-centered, individualized care to each child to help them achieve their goals. I have learned that each family is the expert on their child. I look forward to collaborating with you and your family!
