Carolyn has worked with children in a variety of settings, including school districts, in-home for early intervention services, hospitals and private clinics. She is experienced in working with children ages 0 to 18 with a variety of diagnoses. Her treatments have practical strategies for improving classroom participation and performance, sensory integration therapy, motor coordination intervention, self-regulation and social skills intervention, feeding intervention and handwriting intervention.Therapy sessions incorporate the following programs and therapeutic techniques:

  • Play-based Sensory Integrative Therapy
  • Therapeutic Listening
  • Real OT Solutions Handwriting Program
  • Handwriting Without Tears
  • The Alert Program
  • The Zones of Regulation
  • The Superflex / Social Thinking Curriculums
  • SOS Feeding Therapy

Carolyn strongly believes that treatment is most effective when the therapist, the child’s family and school work together to formulate goals using the child’s occupations (interests and/or motivators) and unique abilities as a means towards achieving those goals and raising the child's self-confidence and happiness. 

EDUCATION

Shelly received her licensing in 2015 and completed her level II fieldwork in the Davis Joint Unified School District where she was trained under Stephanie Roberts, MOT, OTR/L and Carolyn Stallings, MOT, OTR/L.  Her creativity, her natural gift for working with children and her passion for researching and understanding various diagnoses helped to her to quickly develop into a skilled clinician. After staying home with her own young children for several years, Shelly decided to make working with kids her full time career and we are so fortunate to have her at Capital KIDS! Shelly finds much joy in creating fun, individualized, child-based activities to help kids of all ages and abilities reach their therapeutic goals.
