Larry Zier, OTD, OTR/L, earned his clinical doctorate degree from Creighton University. He has received training in the areas of sensory integration, the DIR/Floortime approach, and therapeutic listening, and holds a Profectum DIR certification. Larry was inspired to become an occupational therapist to create a more relationship-based option for parents and have an opportunity to offer an alternative to power and control. He works between Omaha and Chicago, working with kids, families and the clinicians to help create the best team for your family.
His passion is working with children and helping them to achieve their highest potential physically, emotionally, and socially. His approach is to treat each child as an individual, always keeping in mind their unique strengths and differences. He strongly believes in the role of family involvement, as well as collaboration with caregivers, teachers, and other professionals, as integral to a child’s growth and overall success. Larry enjoys work on all aspects of family and child development – motor system, sensory system, emotion system, and then tying them all together in dynamic experiences.
