Kara SyrekOTR

    Kara received her M.S. in occupational therapy from Boston University in 2012 and has worked in outpatient pediatrics ever since. Kara decided to become an occupational therapist to inspire children to be successful in their everyday activities, and she takes pride in seeing her clients make progress toward their goals. Kara was born with a below-elbow amputation and wears a prosthesis on her left arm. The personal experience of living with a physical difference and learning to do tasks one-handed helps her understand the experience of children with special needs. Kara’s therapy sessions are play-based and child-centered, and she works closely with parents/caregivers in order to best meet the needs of each child. Her experience with a variety of treatment interventions such as Handwriting Without Tears, Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Approach to Feeding, sensory integration, Therapeutic Listening, and Neuro-Developmental Therapy (NDT), gives her the broad skill set and knowledge necessary to work with children with a variety of needs. Kara studied abroad in Spain for a year and is fluent in Spanish. Kara enjoys playing with her kids, listening to audiobooks, doing Zumba and Barre workouts, eating chocolate peanut butter ice cream, and traveling! Visiting more national parks is on her bucket list.
