Kelly Weynand, MS, OTR/L

Kelly Weynand pursued her Bachelors followed by Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy before achieving National Board Certification in Occupational Therapy and becoming Licensed in the state of North Carolina.

Ms. Kelly feels drawn to helping children and this shows through as she delivers individual, specialized care to each family. Starting out in her career, Ms. Kelly joined a pediatric practice to develop and refine her skills as an OT. After some time, she felt she needed to be a part of a team that nurtured and supported the development of her skills as well as placed great value on the success of the child through skilled interventions, and this is when she joined the IS Team!

Ms. Kelly specializes in delivering evidence-based techniques including sensory integration interventions, Handwriting Without Tears, Executive Function training, use of therapeutic auditory programs, social-emotional development, Trauma Treatment in Children and Adolescents, Coaching, and the Wilbarger Therapressure Program. She is a Certified Autism Specialist and is currently working towards obtaining her certification as a Trauma Treatment Specialist.

Each day, Ms. Kelly brings her positivity and enthusiasm to her treatments and encourages her children and their families to overcome any obstacles set in their way. Ms. Kelly says, “Our families at IS are amazing! I enjoy the bond that is created not only with our kiddos, but the families as well. No one knows our children more than parents and caregivers. Collaborating with parents for a team-approach provides insight to new strategies to promote overall success and well-being for our little friends. Taking the time before and after sessions to discuss successes and challenges with families provides really valuable information for progress.” Ms. Kelly strives to leave every session and interaction promoting regulation, confidence, and FUN!

Ms. Kelly says, “The IS Team provides incredible support and opportunity. We’re a family here. Having this team to promote mentorship, use of evidence-based practice, and continuing education has proven to be a positive environment for personal and professional growth. Additionally, at IS, we also never miss an opportunity for celebrating!”

When Ms. Kelly is not helping her kiddos at IS, she enjoys hiking, traveling, and spending time with her husband and two pups!
