Hello. My name is Courtney Hastings and I am a pediatric occupational therapist. I graduated from Concordia University in Wisconsin with my Masters of Occupational Therapy.
I recently started my career working at an outpatient pediatric clinic. I’ve treated with kids of all ages (birth-21) with a focus on younger kids. I’m experienced treating many different diagnoses but especially enjoy autism, sensory processing disorder, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD/ADD, developmental delays, and feeding difficulties. I worked very closely with physical therapists and speech language pathologists to best meet the needs of each child. In addition, during my last semester of graduate school, I worked full time seeing many kids aged birth to three in homes and daycares. I connect easily with kids, which is beneficial to establishing therapeutic rapport, which is vital for helping children to achieve the skills necessary to successfully participate in their environment. I have a deep appreciation and understanding of the importance and potential early intervention presents in a growing child’s life.
While in graduate school I held leadership positions in many organizations. I was president of Pi Theta Epsilon (OT honor society), treasurer of Alpha Chi (school-wide honor society), treasurer of Best Buddies (an organization that pairs college students with kids with disabilities), and public relations officer for our Student Occupational Therapy Association.
I recently moved to the area from Fayetteville and am excited to explore the area and build my career. I am eager to work with your family and aim to use my years of related experience, passion and enthusiasm of children to ensure that your child reaches their highest potential.
