About Meg Proctor, MS, OTR/L


Do you ever feel like you're just sort of winging it at work? Like you missed some training along the way that would help you really figure out how to help your clients on the autism spectrum? I've so been there. I've been there in early intervention, clinics, and schools. I've been there as a new graduate and as a not-so-new graduate. 

As a former clinical faculty member for UNC Chapel Hill's TEACCH® Autism program, I was trained and mentored by some of the best autism therapists in the world. And while I gave trainings to teachers, psychologists, and speech therapists from all over the world, the whole time I wondered "WHERE ARE THE OTs??" 

At Learn Play Thrive, I help therapists who work on practical skills with kids on the spectrum to learn and apply the latest evidence -based autism interventions to their work. I want you to show up to work tomorrow excited to try something new.
