Uniquely Qualified Instructor

OLIVIA SHINDEL MS, OTR/L, has extensive experience providing occupational therapy interventions. An engaging and passionate speaker, Olivia brings to each seminar her expertise as a school-based OT, serving students ranging from 3 to 22 years of age. Olivia’s experience includes serving students from a variety of school settings, both in-person and remotely providing virtual therapy services. Although the pandemic was a stressful time in the world as well as our immediate local workspace, Olivia has grown and adapted to the challenges that she faced as an occupational therapist in the school setting. A fluid and flexible mindset has been her passion and focus. She encourages others to adapt and develop a flexible and fluid mindset, which school-based occupational therapists are accustomed to. Olivia looks forward to sharing practical ideas and strategies that can be immediately implemented.
