Suzanne Fullerton, is an Arkansas native and has worked in the
central Arkansas area assisting students with disabilities and their
families for the past 18 years.  Suzanne has worked in both public
and private school settings as well as in clinical settings, her heart
always being drawn to ministering to children and their families in her
role as OT and educator.  She helped to co-found a specialized
school for children with learning differences as well as an outpatient
therapy clinic in the Little Rock area in 2010. In addition to years of
experience working with young children, she has extensive
experience in teaching and leading teenagers in the traditional
classroom setting as well as in vocational training and life skills
acquisition. She has created programs designed to help build
appropriate social interaction by leading community outings and
sponsoring school clubs and extra-curricular activities.  Always most
interested in discovering what makes each student unique in his or
her struggles and areas of gifting, she uses her extensive knowledge
of OT practices and procedures in conjunction with the Scriptural
principles articulated in Psalm 139 giving thanks to God for each child
who is “fearfully and wonderfully made,” and intimately known by
God, our Creator.
Suzanne is currently one of only a handful of people in the state with
a specialty in Sensory Integration including certification to administer
the SIPT as well as having completed a mentorship program through
the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation, under the direction of
Dr. Lucy Miller.   As such, she has led workshops statewide teaching
parents, teachers, and other therapists.  Suzanne has continued her
affiliation with UCA as guest teacher and former adjunct professor for
OT students.  Suzanne views family counseling as a vital but often
overlooked component to helping students with disabilities reach their
full potential.  One of her career goals is to help families live an
integrated, healthy life with their special needs child.  In 2015,
Suzanne began to pursue her masters in multisensory teaching
through Dallas Baptist University. Since her completion of the degree
in 2017, she has obtained a therapy level credentialing in Dyslexia.
Currently, Suzanne sees children privately for occupational therapy
and teaches literacy classes for dyslexia and other learning
disabilities at Avilla Christian Academy where she also serves as the
Coordinator of Specialized Services.
