Occupational Therapy comes to Spark.
Spark Therapies has branched out into Occupational Therapy with articul-motor, gross motor, and sensory practices to complement the existing Speech Therapy and Literacy services. This change comes with the addition of a new provider: Marin Marka, MS, OTR/L.
Marin comes to Spark as a recent graduate of Boston University’s Masters of Occupational Therapy. She received her undergraduate degree from Tuft’s in Human Development where she graduated with honors. She has worked in a variety of clinical settings will all ages. Marin previously taught adaptive piano to children with sensory processing disorders. Marin is incredibly creative, kind, and fun in all that she does. This is especially obvious in her passion for therapy and helping families. Marin enjoys vestibular and sensory practices and plans to make full use of Spark Therapies’ new sensory gym, currently being installed in the old multipurpose room.
The new Sensory Gym will be an all-in-one obstacle course style space. The outer edges will have a ball pit, climbing towers, foamnasium equipment, and new foam flooring. The back wall features a crash pit and rock wall. Two “treehouses” offer ladders, monkey bars, trapeze rings, a platform swing, tube swing, and sensory swing. Beneath the treehouses hides a playhouse. There is also a cozy black-light sensory cave with mirrors, fiber optic lighting features, interactive bubble tube, black light reactive manipulatives, and more.
We hope our families will enjoy this new space and that it will add more in-depth sensory support to our existing services as well as the new Occupational Therapy service.
Please give Marin a warm welcome to the community as she settles into Spark and the Upper Valley of NH.
Stay tuned for updates and photos of the new Sensory Gym as it gets completed!
