DONNA KLEIN, M.A., OTR/L
Donna Klein is the founder and director of Westchester Therapy Solutions. She has devoted the past 30+ years to the care and development of children and the education of their families. Donna’s background and expertise lies in Sensory Integration, Autism Spectrum disorders (ASD), ADHD/executive functioning limitations, and children with behavioral difficulties. She received a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from SUNY Buffalo, a Master’s Degree in Developmental Psychology from Columbia University and holds a Certification in Sensory Integration.
Her work experience began in adult rehabilitation providing her with an understanding of neurology which soon transformed into her passion for working with children. During the early years, Donna worked with children of all ages, birth through adolescence. She spent time in school districts, early intervention programs, and preschools as a team member to maximize a child’s function. Donna Klein & Associates developed a solid reputation for providing high-quality therapy that truly made a difference in the lives of their young clients. As the years went by, under Donna’s leadership the company grew into what is now Westchester Therapy Solutions with over 70 therapists and a wonderful team of administrative professionals. She takes pride in hand-picking therapists to join WTS, guiding them to take their therapeutic skill level higher and having a wonderful team of supervisors that are always available to parents.
Donna was thrilled when WTS moved and significantly expanded to its current clinic location in Harrison, NY. The state-of-the-art sensory gym includes a pirate ship, sensory room, school-age exploration area, toddler zone, speech clinic, and multiple evaluation areas. Donna believes an important goal for every child is to make friends more easily. As a result, the clinic focuses on empowering all children to “play” beyond what was previously thought possible with other children and with their special buddy / his/her therapist. The clinic destination is an exciting space full of the dynamic therapy equipment, has plenty of parking, there is a daycare center in the building, and it has a spacious cafeteria. Come visit Donna and her staff anytime to see the confidence build in our children, the smiles on their faces and the parents thrilled with the services we provide.
