Kaylee is excited to continue her education in sensory integration to further her knowledge and provide current, evidence-based practice.

Testimonials

Mikey’s mom
Working with Interplay has given Mikey so much confidence! He tries new things, he wants to climb higher and swing faster; six months ago he wouldn’t even look at a swing! My little boy who never wanted to hug or would wipe away a kiss, now runs to hug me and kisses my cheek every night before bed, for me that is priceless!
