Kalie Crumpley has a Doctorate in Occupational Therapy from St. Ambrose University (SAU) in Davenport, IA. Kalie has a Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in Women and Gender Studies from SAU as well. Kalie completed her doctoral research project by practicing in the normative data collection of EASI assessment, which is the upcoming and updated version of the SIPT (the gold standard for evaluating sensory integration function). This opportunity provided her with exposure to the importance of sensory integration in daily tasks, and realized many professionals overlook the importance of a regulated nervous system for appropriate sensory function and occupational performance. She has a special interest in Sensory Integration Therapy and has a passion for ways the Sensory Integration and Processing Framework can be beneficial for survivors of complex trauma and increase efficiency and effectiveness of treatment to maximize healing and recovery. Kalie hopes this course allows all survivors to participate and perform in their daily occupations to the best of their ability through empowerment, therapeutic rapport, and building resilience!
