My passion for Occupation Therapy began from experiences with therapists providing services to my younger brother who has autism and severe mental retardation. From a very early age I have wanted to work with children and families to aid in development and education and look forward to helping families in this area. I have a Master's degree from WVU in Occupational Therapy.
Carla Wright Parker
Occupational Therapist Assistant
I graduated in 2009 from Mountain State University with a degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant. I have had my certification for over a year now. I have four children of my own ranging in ages 8 down to 3 months old. My oldest child has ADHD. I love working with kids and the elderly.
I have over 8 years of experience in the field of Occupational Therapy. I began my career working with children in the Greenbrier County school system in 2005. I quickly realized my passion for OT and the relevant need for helping others. I have went on to work in pediatrics, geriatrics, home health, and have a number of specializations in this field. I have a Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from the School of Medicine at West Virginia University. I reside locally in Greenbrier County with my family.
I have worked with West Virginia Birth to Three and the public school system for 15 plus years as an Occupational Therapist. Children are wonderful, working with children and parents in the home is the best. I look at a child's skills in all areas of development-such as- how they move, roll, crawl, walk, how they use their hands to play how they tell you what they want, how they feed/dress themselves and how they behave. I have had many years experience in working with children that have concerns in any of these skills-from prematurity to autism and everything in between. I know parents want their children to be happy and learn new things. I enjoy helping parents be able to teach their children.
