Hi! I’m Kim Griffin, occupational therapist and founder of GriffinOT.
I qualified as occupational therapist in Australia in 2003. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of working with many children and their families, as well as teachers. I have worked in Australia, Ireland and the UK. A core focus of my career has been helping children who have sensory processing differences and/or motor skill challenges. This includes extensive experience supporting children with autism/ASD, developmental delays, dyspraxia/DCD and specific learning difficulties. In addition, I have been lucky enough to complete training with many of the leaders in the field of sensory integration, such as Lucy Miller and Zoe Mailloux.
This background has provided me with the knowledge and motivation to set up the GriffinOT online supports. I believe that occupational therapists have unique skills which can help children who may have sensory difficulties, and /or poor coordination skills. My goal is to ensure that all families and school have immediate access to this occupational therapy expertise. I want them to know how they can help their children.
