Meet Arthur
I am a recent graduate of Columbia University's occupational therapy program. I am currently working for the NYC Department of Education as an OT, as part of my full-tuition scholarship commitment. I work in a District 75 high school for students with autism and other disabilities.

My experience in special needs care began eight years years ago when I worked as a direct care professional for young adult males diagnosed with autism. As an undergraduate at Temple University I provided student companionship for an older gentleman with dementia. I also was a respite provider for a family with three child-aged brothers, of which two were on the autism spectrum, for about two years.

As a graduate student, I have worked privately with a family who has a 26-year-old son with autism. I helped him gain more independence in life and practical skills, such as shaving, showering, laundry, social interaction, sports, exercise, and more. I continue to work with him in capacity of an occupational therapist to this day. While a student, I have worked with a wide range of impairment areas, including dementia, developmental disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, substance abuse, upper extremity injuries, and neurological impairments related to CVAs.

Forward Function is the beginning of my private practice, in which I help adults with developmental disabilities improve their everyday life skills. I am a hardworking, energetic, and patient person, who is passionate about improving the lives of others.
