Her goal in starting OT Studios was to design an intimate creative space where OT and Speech Therapy could be provided. Reema Durrani is SIPT certified and a CAS (certified autism specialist) who combined her passion for sensory integration and the creative arts to develop the SensoKids who are characters that represent the sensory systems most used in Ayres Sensory Integration.
The studio space is unique in the fact that a maximum of 2-3 children are treated within the space per session which ultimately provides less distraction and allows treatment to be administered in an intimate environment,while including the socialization element necessary for peer play.
She completed her residency at Dogwood Therapy Services, Inc. in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she incorporated animal assisted therapy as a motivating therapeutic modality to achieve clients’ goals. She has completed continuing education in dog handling, training and behavior, and developing animal assisted therapy programs. Karen and her canine co-therapist Dottie, are dedicated to promoting their clients’ independence and participation in meaningful activities.
