Stephanie Baumgartner - OT
Hello,

My name is Stephanie Baumgartner and I am the Occupational Therapist servicing Richfield School District.  I have been an occupational therapist for 19 years, servicing children for 17 years.  I began my career working in a medically-based setting, but transitioned to working as a school-based occupational therapist in 2006 in York, Pennsylvania. 

I am employed by Dominiczak Therapy Associates, which is a company that contracts OT and PT services to area school districts and  I have had the opportunity to service Richfield School District since 2009.  Check out our webpage at: http://domtherapy.com and Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com//dta4schoolOTPT

Although I travel to various schools during each week, I have found this area of practice to be very rewarding and have learned so much personally and professionally with each of the schools, staff, students and families that I have had the opportunity to serve.

I really enjoy having the opportunity to problem-solve, modify, and adapt materials in order to maximize a child's ability to achieve independence within their learning environment.  I believe in collaboration with staff and families in order to generalize skills across environments as this is such a powerful learning tool for children.  Chances are, you won't find me working in a "therapy room" with your child as I feel that working with and problem-solving with students and collaborating with staff "in the moment" within in their classroom is the most effective place to be!
 
I will typically be at RES on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and I will be at Plat School on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
