My name is Hailey Gastrow and I am a licensed occupational therapist who has a heart for the pediatric population. I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and am excited to be apart of the greater Chicago area in order to serve the many wonderful children and families within the area. I have worked with children with sensory processing disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder, developmental delays, behavioral and social-emotional issues, and other developmental delays. I completed a fieldwork rotation working with infants most often suffering from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and deficits secondary to prematurity, which has peaked my interest and efforts to become early intervention certified in the near future. When I am not working, I thoroughly enjoy reading a good book, spending quality time with friends and family, or relaxing with a good cup of coffee. I am eager and excited to continue to keep learning and working with children in order to assist them reaching their full potential and achieve their milestones!

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
