Occupational Therapy - Clinical Specialist
Get to know Hannah Durning, OTR
A child’s purpose is to grow, play, and learn how to be in the world. I believe understanding and working with the various circumstances of a family unit is vital to a child’s success. Learning to move and explore their environments, starting on the first day of life, begins to build a foundation of brain development and the child’s unique understanding of the world. When these first days, weeks, or years of life contain limiting factors, whether physical, emotional or cognitive in nature, the basis on which they understand and interpret the world can be skewed. This, in turn, can alter the way they interact with the people and environments causing unnecessary stress to their neurological system, physical body and social interactions. As an occupational therapist, I offer techniques and skills to help reset the nervous system and body alignment to facilitate smoother, more efficient interactions with the outside world.
Clinical Interests: Neurodevelopment, feeding, family education, attachment theory, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, sensory processing, reflex integration
