New Occupational Therapist Joins Child Success Center Team

The Occupational Therapy Team at Child Success Center is pleased to welcome Gina Yoo as it’s newest member. 

Gina Yoo joins the Occupational Therapy team at Child Success Center in Santa Monica, California

Gina Yoo, MS OTR/L, comes to us with 12 years of experience in the field of Pediatric Occupational Therapy. She has worked with individuals ranging from 0-21 years old with a variety of diagnoses, ranging from developmental delay to Autism to Down Syndrome. She is a graduate of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. In addition, she is certified in auditory programs such as Therapeutic Listening and Integrative Listening Systems (iLs).

While incorporating her knowledge of child development, she predominantly utilizes a Sensory Integrative approach to treatment sessions with a focus on primitive reflex integration, core strengthening, postural control, visual motor/perceptual development and overall fine and gross motor coordination. With a background in floor time, her priority is to ensure that the child feels confident and safe as sessions are child directed with adult facilitation.

She has also worked with other disciplines throughout her career such as speech and language pathology, physical therapy, developmental optometry and psychology to enhance the therapeutic experience not only for the child but the family as well.

Gina’s main goal is to provide a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment to promote each child’s optimal performance, build self-esteem and teach skills to enhance their quality of life and academic success. In addition, since the family is an integral part of the therapeutic team, Gina feels it is essential to involve them in the process and selection of activities for carry over in the home and community.

We welcome Gina to Child Success Center and look forward to introducing her to our families!
