Meet Ali

Ali Lynch is a pediatric occupational therapist with nearly 15 years of experience across a variety of pediatric settings including education, outpatient, in-home, virtual, and community trainings. Additionally, as a mama of three kids, Ali sees firsthand the diversity and uniqueness of each child even within her own family. This combination makes her uniquely equipped to support children and families with a variety of needs.

Ali's experience focuses on supporting the unique needs of each child and she is especially passionate about facilitating self-regulation. We live in a world that is getting more and more anxious. Each child deserves to find ways that their unique body and brain best regulate. Some kids are able to regulate their emotions and behaviors without much support while others benefit from exploring sensory based regulation strategies with a trained and experienced professional.

Ali is a licensed occupational therapist and has a master's degree in occupational therapy from Washington University in St. Louis.

Occupational Therapy Evaluation

The child is guided through a series of tasks to determine how underlying skill areas may be contributing to areas of concern.

Direct Occupational Therapy

Following an occupational therapy evaluation, the therapist works with the child to improve mutually agreed upon goal areas. 

School Consulation

Educators and the therapist explore difficulties observed in school and areas where the student may benefit from an observation, therapeutic intervention, adaptive equipment, an occupational therapy evaluation, and/or individual or group occupational therapy.

Parent Consultation

Parent concerns are discussed to determine if a child may benefit from an occupational therapy evaluation, observation, or recommendations of products, activities, or a consultation with another type of service provider. Consultations can stand alone or be combined with ongoing direct therapy to provide education and monitor progress on goals.

Home or School Program Development

After determining underlying skill areas that are impacting the goals of the child, family, and/or school, a program is developed to be completed at home or school. The program will be monitored and adapted as the child progresses.

Sensory Training

— Parents of a 7 year old

I have spent the last 7 years advocating for my son, looking for answers, seeking understanding for myself and from anyone that knew SOMETHING. We have toured many schools, spent countless hours working with other professionals, spent thousands on evaluations... anything to help us help our child and family… NEVER did I think OT would help my child. Sure, maybe with some handwriting skills, but not the daily struggles he/we have. Lo and behold, we finally hired @yourkidrockstherapy to help, and it's changed our world. I CANNOT BELIEVE what basic biological struggles my child copes with every day and am amazed at how he's adapted to make his world work for him. This is science you guys! And it is changing all of our lives. For the first time in 7 years I feel like we have a team, an advocate, an ally, a professional with so much more knowledge and experience than we have, fighting for us, and with us, to give our child exactly what he needs. Please don't be me. If you have any inkling that your child is struggling with ANYTHING, especially at a young age, it'll be worth your time to find out how you can better be in their corner. I can confidently say I've never been more impressed by a professional in my life. I am grateful beyond belief, and know in my heart WE will get there.
