I support your child with the common core and also with individualized goals.

Ms. Natalie Taylor-Gyll, Occupational Therapist

My name is Natalie Taylor and I have been an OT working in the public school system for 18 years. This is my second year as an OT for Wake County Public Schools and for Stough ES. Previously, I worked for a school district in north Santa Barbara County, California. I graduated from Mc Master University in Hamilton, Ontario with a degree in Occupational Therapy. Because Occupational Therapists focus on developing sensory motor skills, I use play and movement therapy to help strengthen motor skills. I feel very fortunate that my job feels more like fun than work and I hope my student feel the same way too!
