Amanda Dailey, MS, OTR/L
Amanda lives in Harford county with her husband and 2 beautiful girls. She founded Colorful Kids OT, LLC in 2020 after recognizing the unique struggle families with children with special needs were experiencing during the pandemic. She has always been determined to bring more therapeutic services to the families of this great community and surrounding areas. The digital school year that transpired in 2020 made that desire even stronger. Amanda hopes she can be another positive support in the lives of children and their families during this difficult time.
She is a passionate and highly dedicated pediatric occupational therapist with over 8 years clinical experience. After graduating with her Bachelor and Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy & Occupational Science as well as a minor in Family Studies from Towson University, Amanda has gone on to work at several pediatric outpatient clinics as well as for the Baltimore County Infants and Toddlers program. She has had the privilege to work along side and learn from other highly respected clinicians in the field of OT other health professions, including: Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) clinicians, speech and language pathologists (SLP), special education teachers, adaptive gym teachers, social workers, physical therapists (PT) and music therapists. She believes a collaborative team approach to therapy is the best way to see all the skills and abilities a child has to offer through different frameworks. She would be more than happy to reach out to your child’s team to determine how collaborative efforts can be made between services.
During her career, Amanda has gained extensive knowledge and experience with many issues affecting children: Fine motor delay, sensory integration dysfunction, motor planning issues, visual motor/ perception impairment, reflex integration, handwriting issues, and feeding challenges. She has also worked closely with children with autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay, sensory processing disorder, coordination disorder/ dyspraxia and behavioral challenges. Amanda strongly believes that establishing a therapeutic relationship with both the child and family can make all the difference in a child’s progress.
