ARTHUR KERN, MS, OTR/L

I am a school based occupational therapist by day, and a home care provider for older adults by night. When I am not with students or patients, you can find me cycling, enjoying a good sandwich, or exploring new neighborhoods with my amazing wife Darci. 

EXPERIENCE

I decided to become an OT after working in a residence for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and intellectual disabilities when I was in high school. Now, I have over 10 years of experience working with individuals with ASD and am honored to serve such a unique and dynamic population through adulthood. 

I also specialize in providing therapy services for older adults and families for issues related to positive ageing, memory care, and mobility.
