About Christy and Caitlin

Christy Kennedy, a pediatric Occupational Therapist, has specialized in Sensory Integration (SI) for over thrity one years and been in private practice in Decatur, GA for the last twenty seven.

After graduating from the Medical College of Georgia in 1981, Christy worked in both pediatric and adult rehabilitation before dedicating her practice to her present area of expertise.  In 1988, Christy took a sabbatical to enter the Cincinnati Occupational Therapy Institute for a concentrated study program in Sensory Integration evaluation and treatment.  She completed her Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) certification in 1989.

Christy has continued to broaden her professional knowledge by studying and incorporating many adjunct treatment approaches such as nutrition, cranial sacral therapy, sound therapy and vision therapy. Along with this ever growing knowledge has come a better understanding about how to holistically support her clients in maximizing their potential.  Her specialized training in sound therapy has included SAMONAS, Therapeutic Listening and The Listening Program (TLP).

Christy has additionally helped to raise awareness of the Sensory Integration component of Pediatric Occupational Therapy in the Atlanta area by sponsoring SI related conferences and bringing in world renowned speakers.

While Christy works primarily with children aged three to nine years old who have sensory integration or processing disorders (SPD), she has also worked with infants, toddlers, adolescents and adults.

In a professional magazine article, Christy discusses her approach to teaching self-regulation.

She is now passionate about working with children of all ages, stages, and diagnoses. Over the past ten years, she has gained clinical knowledge working with children in multiple settings including child development centers, private schools, OT summer camps (for both CIMT and sensory integration), OT outpatient facilities, and home visits. She is ecstatic to continue her career promoting children’s individual skills, facilitating client-centered engagement, and supporting families through collaboration and education. Outside of OT, Caitlin stays active by playing soccer, swimming, or running. She also enjoys spending time with family and friends.
