How can I help your child succeed?

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!
