KIM MARTELL MS, OTR/L, BCN
Director of Administration and Clinical Practice
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, Jonnie, who has Down syndrome. This offered Kim the opportunity to witness and participate in therapies, special needs camps and adaptive activities throughout childhood. Kim earned her Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Tufts University prior to joining the Project CHILLD team as an OT. Having majored in neuroscience as an undergraduate at Bates College, Kim was a natural fit when Project CHILLD began its in-house neurofeedback program in 2010, and she jumped at the opportunity to learn. Kim became board-certified as a neurofeedback provider through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) in 2014 and achieved Fellow status in 2022. She has attended the annual Neurofeedback Interchange Conference and received extensive education in neurofeedback practice. Additionally, Kim has comprehensive training in sensory processing, autism and trauma. She has also completed the Astronaut Training Program, Learning Without Tears and Integrated Listening Systems courses.
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.
