DONNA KLEIN, M.A., OTR/L
Donna Klein is the founder and director of Westchester Therapy Solutions. She has devoted the past 25+ 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 nearly 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 is thrilled that as of February, 2017, Westchester Therapy Solutions has moved and expanded its clinic to Harrison, NY. The sensory gym includes a pirate ship, sensory room, school-age exploration area, toddler zone, speech clinic, and fine motor evaluation area. Donna believes an important goal for every child is to make friends more easily. As a result, she is excited to now offer Therapist-led Social Skill groups to families. The clinic is an exciting space full of new state of the art equipment, plenty of parking, a daycare center in the building, and a spacious cafeteria.
