Jannean Burke, MOTR / L

Dawn Neese, COTA / L
Jannean joined the InterPlay team as an intern in 2015 and after graduating from her Masters program stayed on board accepting a full-time position. Jannean acquired her B.S. in Exercise Science and Health Promotion from Florida Atlantic University and continued her education at Nova Southeastern university where she received her Masters in Occupational Therapy. Jannean was trained directly by Dr. Pilar Saa and by Ms.Tanya Smith on sensory intervention techniques and she continues to focus her education towards sensory based interventions.

Jannean has successfully treated many children at InterPlay and her kind spirit, and her understanding of childhood occupations and difficulties vastly help her in finding a playful but therapeutic approach to treatment.

Jannean has spent most of her life working with children, at schools, at after care and as a camp counsellor. This is where she found her passion for the pediatric population.

Jannean focus is on a family centered approach, looking to build therapeutic relationships with both her clients and their families. She is excited to be a part of the interplay family and continue expanding her knowledge of sensory integration as it related to participation in functional occupations.

Words cannot even begin to describe how very grateful and pleased we were with Dr. Pilar Saa and her professional staff of Occupational Therapists. We had an appointment for an initial evaluation with Dr. Saa scheduled a few weeks in the future for when she returned from being out of the country, but we called her office as our 3 year-old son was in some immediate distress and she squeezed us in before she left. We have never forgotten that!! Our son was able to start his OT immediately with the most wonderful, warm, kind, compassionate therapist that we all grew to love. He actually looked forward to his appointments at the play-gym. We are happy to report that our son is thriving and doing wonderfully. We cannot thank Dr. Saa and her staff enough for being such a special part of our "village". They held our hands through every step of the way, educated us and guided us as we navigated this scary thing called "Sensory Processing Disorder". We highly recommend Dr. Pilar Saa and her staff at InterPlay!!!!
