“Kay McCarthy is one of the most, if not the most, talented and knowledgeable pediatric therapists I know. She brings a wealth of experience, understanding and creativity into every therapy session. Kay is an excellent diagnostician who utilizes a variety of strategies and treatments to ensure the maximum benefit for her children (clients). Kay establishes and maintains a positive, warm rapport with all of her clients. I highly recommend her as a therapist!!”

“I had the opportunity to collaborate with Kay on a student we both saw/treated for OT services. She was extremely helpful in sharing her clinical experiences and observations of the student and was willing to support and collaborate on treatment ideas to be carried over into all settings including a school environment. She was easy to talk with and shared lots of her knowledge!”

— School based Occupational Therapist

“I have known Kay McCarthy for the past 12 years. I worked with her as a peer and I have also worked with her as a parent. My youngest daughter received services from pre-school until 3rd grade. I am currently an Occupational Therapist for Special School District. As a peer, I have referred several of my students to Kay for private services. She has been fantastic working with the school based OT and has found a bridge from private services to implementation into the classroom. It is very difficult to find an Occupational Therapist who is as thorough as Kay McCarthy with her assessments and interventions for children with disabilities. She assesses the whole child.”
