I am Sara Wilbert, founder of Beacon Pediatric Therapy Services and occupational therapist for over 21 years. My goal is to help the children I work with be the best version of themself through meaning play and interventions that promote independence and fulfillment. My work experience includes public and private school based practice, early intervention, and adult rehabilitation. My training and continuing education has included sensory processing & integration, visual perception & functional visual skills, yoga for children with special needs, feeding therapy, and Autism. I am a certified children's yoga teacher, an Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist, trained in the Tummy Time Method and trained in the SOS feeding approach. Beacon Pediatric Therapy specializes in a whole child approach to promoting the development of skills needed for a child to participate in their daily "occupations." Occupational Therapy interventions focus on the physical, cognitive and emotional health of the child through a regulated sensory system, strong coordinated body and emotional wellbeing. Services include sensory integration, feeding therapy, co-regulation strategies and motor development activities of the hands, eyes and body so your child can acquire the skills to grow and learn.
