KIM MARTELL MS, OTR/L, BCN
Kim Martell is an occupational therapist and board-certified neurofeedback provider, who has specialized in pediatric practice at Project CHILLD since 2009. Her desire to pursue occupational therapy was born from personal experience with her younger brother, who has Down syndrome. This offered Kim the opportunity to witness and participate in therapies, special needs camps and adaptive activities throughout childhood. In 2008, Kim earned her Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Tufts University. Two years later, Project CHILLD began its in-house neurofeedback program, and Kim jumped at the opportunity to learn. She had earned her bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Bates College in 2003 and had always been fascinated by the brain. Kim became a board-certified neurofeedback provider in 2014 and has since attended the annual Neurofeedback Interchange Conference. In addition to neurofeedback, Kim has training in Sensory Processing, the Astronaut Training Program, Handwriting Without Tears and Integrated Listening Systems.
Kim’s professional experience includes speaking engagements on the topic of Sensory Processing Disorder, at the International Mosaic Down Syndrome Conference in 2016, and via webinar for the Arc of Massachusetts. In 2015, she presented on the topic of neurofeedback at the Salem State Annual Student Research Conference.
