Timi Akinrinade is a licensed occupational therapist who has a love for pediatrics and a focus on supporting children with autism, sensory processing disorder, and developmental delay. She has worked with children with behavioral challenges, such as oppositional defiant disorder, and ADHD.   Timi spent most of her formative years in Florida and then in Indiana; she received her doctorate in occupational therapy at Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska in 2019. Timi completed a doctoral project in Nigeria—as an international rotation–and created educational  YouTube Videos  and a training manual; she also educated parents, caregivers, and teachers on how to apply sensory integration with children who have autism. Outside of her international rotation, Timi completed fieldwork in an outpatient pediatric clinic.  She is a certified recreational therapist who worked at a psychiatric residential treatment facility for adolescence. Outside of work, Timi enjoys traveling abroad, spending time with family, and going to events in Chicago. Timi is excited to continue supporting children and their families reach their highest potential at home and in school—in their personal and academic life!

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.
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!
