Bailie, OT/L

Occupational Therapist

Bailie has evaluated and treated children in the school setting with varying diagnoses including autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, developmental delays, visual impairments, congenital limb defects, and trauma. She has experience working as part of an interdisciplinary team and collaborating with physical therapists, speech therapists, psychologists, teachers, and physicians to facilitate coordinated care and meet the child and families’ goals.

Bailie grew up in Ohio and attended undergrad at The Ohio State University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a minor in Disability Studies. While in undergrad, she volunteered at Nationwide Children’s Hospital assisting children and families who had been through traumatic experiences. Through this role, she utilized play to provide children with an outlet for their anxieties. She then moved to Indiana and attended Indiana State University, earning a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. In graduate school, Bailie conducted research on the effects of sensory motor therapy for children who have experienced complex trauma.

She has worked with children focusing on handwriting difficulties, fine and gross motor skills, self-regulation techniques, executive functioning, and sensory integration. She is also trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid. Bailie’s previous clients and supervisors describe her as patient, motivating, and dependable. She is excited to work in the natural environment and collaborate with families to develop goals that are meaningful to the child and family.

Bailie recently moved to Durham with her fiancé and cat. She is looking forward to exploring the area and finding the best coffee The Triangle has to offer!
