Darlene Logan OTR/L


Darlene has been an Occupational Therapist for 20+ years and loves working with children to help them grow to become the wonderful “little people” that they are. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Texas Woman’s University in Houston Texas and has continued her education specializing in Sensory Process deficits, Autism, Integrated Listening Systems, Reflex Integration Training, feeding difficulty vs. “Picky Eaters” and Developmental Delays in all ages but especially birth to 4 years old. She is also a MERIT approved trainer for Sensory Processing issues.


She has worked in hospital based pediatric in-patient and out-patient settings, pediatric clinics, Early Head Start school programs and Early Intervention not-for-profit programs. She has experience working with children with sensory processing disorder, Autism Spectrum, Downs Syndrome, ADHD, ADD, premature birth process children, feeding issues and Medically Fragile children.


As a Pediatric Occupational Therapist she believes in putting the “fun” back in “functional” to help all those entrusted to her care to be successful in all that they attempt to do every day.  It hurts her heart to hear of little ones being “asked to leave day-cares” because they are “not a good fit” if it is sensory related issues that “looks” like bad behavior. She also believes strongly in supporting the whole family to thrive and succeed during difficult times.


Darlene has lived in Washington for many years and enjoys the beauty of this state along with kayaking and “creaky knees” hiking trails.

Katie began practicing Occupational Therapy in 2010 when she graduated from the Masters of Occupational Therapy program at the University of Washington.

The most vital people in a child’s life are their family/caregivers; Katie is passionate about helping them problem solve and learn about their child’s individual strengths and needs. She feels privileged to work with children because they have a passion for life and an innocence that reminds her daily of what is most important.

 

Katie has lived in several different locations around the country but feels most at home in the Seattle area. She enjoys exploring Seattle with her husband, her toddler, and their German Shepard puppy by walking, hiking, running, biking, or canoeing. Katie also loves to relax with family and friends.

He has experience utilizing Sensory Integration therapy and has worked with children with various diagnoses. He has worked with children with difficulties in the area of handwriting, executive functions, sensory processing, picky eating, and delays of typical development. William loves to utilize activities of interest in therapy to support children with disabilities to improve independence and reach key developmental milestones. He utilizes a child-directed approach, which serves as a successful means to implement interventions by encouraging and prioritizing child participation through choice.

 

William believes that collaboration is key for success in therapy. With this in mind, William is always looking for opportunities to work in tandem with families and caregivers of his clients. A strong believer that parents are the experts of their children, William strives to use input from multiple sources to develop a holistic and individualized treatment plan for each child.

 

An avid soccer fan, William loves supporting the Seattle Sounders and playing when he can. He also enjoys hiking, running, and cycling. When wanting to relax, he often chooses between reading or watching anything and everything related to Star Wars.
