Shannon Gaetke

Shannon is a Board Certified, NC licensed Occupational Therapist. She recently relocated to join the IS team from the Atlanta area. Shannon is excited to join the IS team because she has a passion for pediatrics and to help others. When relocating to Charlotte, Shannon was looking to join a collaborative team of positive, hardworking, and supportive professionals, and found IS to be just that!

In addition to collaborating with her team, Shannon enjoys partnering with caregivers to provide education and strategies on ways to play and work with their child. Shannon believes in order to make dramatic and positive changes, the family must be engaged in the therapeutic process. When working with families and their children she understands the importance of trust, rapport, and positive learning experiences thereby fostering the child’s success.

Shannon has specialized training in Kinesiology Taping for Pediatrics, Handwriting Without Tears, DIR/Floortime, Astronaut training, Wilbarger Therapressure Program, the Alert Program, Zones of Regulation and the Social Thinking Curriculum. She is currently working on her obtaining her certification in Cortical Visual Impairments.

In her spare time, she enjoys walking her miniature Dachshund, drinking way too much coffee, and attempting to learn how to play the ukulele.
