Risk-taking  Inspiration  Self-esteem  Empowerment

We enjoy working with children and adolescents of all ages facing disability, developmental delay, or injury, to reach their full potential. We have a client and family-centered approach to therapy, which includes evidence-based intervention techniques to address oral motor and feeding/eating, sensory processing, sensory modulation, gross motor, fine motor, handwriting, self-care, and visual-motor concerns. Intervention occurs primarily through play and meaningful social interactions.

H. Noelle Vaughn, MS, OTR/L


Noelle Vaughn earned her Bachelor of Arts degree at Fort Lewis College, with a major in Elementary Education, as well as an English as a second language endorsement and a minor in French. Miss Vaughn taught elementary school for five years and went on to earn her Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Colorado State University. She has worked in a variety of pediatric and adult practice settings including schools, clinics and in-home pediatric therapy. In addition to having her own successful practice, Miss Vaughn helped to establish the nonprofit organization, Kids Included of Colorado. She loves working with kids one-on-one, as well as in group settings and has had the opportunity to work with children from around the world, incorporating her second and third languages into her practice. She is a Colorado native who loves working with kids, being outside, and traveling.



Our experience with Noelle has been wonderful.  I believe she comes to the sessions with beneficial plans;  yet goes with the flow of the moment letting lessons present themselves.  At this age, 13, it is really helpful that my daughter has opportunity to discuss and learn life skills from another woman in addition to me, especially, since she requires so much repetition. All our sessions have been valuable.
