Mrs. Fano, MS OTR/L
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!
Occupational therapy can be defined as an art and science.
My general approach to working with students is to provide a warm, fun and comfortable environment that creates positive outcomes.
I earned my post professional masters degree from Boston University (Sargent College).
I hold a National Board Certification and certifications in Pediatric Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) and in Assistive Technology (CAT). I have extensive continuing education in sensory processing, and brain based learning.
I have many years of experience in the areas of child development and working collaboratively with families and the educational team.
This is my 12 year at Marlboro! I will be at Defino Central, Marlboro Elementary, and Memorial Middle School; in addition to completing district wide evaluations .
I strive to keep current with therapeutic and educational trends and take special interests in those methods that demonstrate effectiveness of interventions used in school based practice. (Evidence Based Practice)
School based therapy is driven by the educational model which makes it different than therapy in clinics, hospitals, home care or early intervention.
