Aubrey Schmalle, OTR/L, SIPT has 20 years of experience working with neurologically diverse children using a sensory integrative approach. She graduated from Boston University in 2003 with a Bachelors in Occupational Therapy and continued to advance her clinical knowledge through self-study, mentorship, certification in sensory integration theory and practice (C-SIPT), Consultant level certification in the Tomatis Method, and training in Tomatis-based auditory interventions. In 2011, she opened a private occupational therapy clinic, providing comprehensive evaluation and treatment of sensory processing disorders and related disabilities such as Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Executive Function deficits. She specializes in the comprehensive educational evaluation of a child's sensory-learning profile in order to facilitate collaboration between school-based professionals to develop comprehensive support plans to meet the needs of individual learners. She possesses advanced knowledge in visual-vestibular integration treatment techniques, treatment of postural-ocular and functional visual skill deficits, and intervention to address sensory-motor-perceptual factors contributing to dyslexia and dysgraphia. Aubrey's passion for empowering children, families, and professionals inspired the creation of the Body Activated Learning framework to support the body foundation for attention and learning with the unique needs of a digital generation in mind. In 2015, she authored The Body Activated Learning Handbook and continues to develop programming, educational supports, resources, and trainings based on the Body Activated LearningTM approach. She maintains her clinical practice in Stamford, CT while guest lecturing, training teachers, nurses, program directors, and parent advocates, providing professional courses, and giving weekly educational live talks in her Parenting Children with Special Needs in a New Reality Facebook group. She recently launched her Level 1 online certification program for parents, paraprofessionals, learning pod proctors, and any other individuals supporting children with diverse sensory and learning needs.
