Jean Ayres, the developer of Sensory Integration.
Heather's experience of being a mother of two children helps her to relate to the needs of the children and families that she works with. She emphasizes caregiver education and she enjoys collaborating with other professionals and parents to provide comprehensive care to meet the needs of each individual child. One of the things that Heather loves the most about working with pediatric clients is establishing lifelong relationships with the children and families that she serves.
