Nick met a milestone! He had a gross motor goal of holding motor movements for 30 seconds. Prone extension is similar to the “Superman” core exercise. Supine flexion is commonly referred to as a “silly bug” exercise. Nick held both of these positions for 30 seconds last week. Great job!  

Makenzie came to ABA Therapy unable to identify her own emotions, as well as, others. Makenzie also, struggled to problem solve, because she was unsure of how others were feeling around her, which typically caused her to react to the situation inappropriately. 🤷‍♀️

Makenzie has now been working with her therapist for several months on identifying emotions, body language, voice level, etc. While we are still working on mastering this goal, I am so proud of how far Makenzie has come! During Makenzie's session, she witnessed a peer having a tantrum and took it upon herself to analyze her peer's emotions. She recognized that her peer was feeling frustrated, the reasoning why and offered several coping skills the peer could try, in order to calm down. ✔️ 

You go ROCKSTAR!! 🌟 We love watching you grow!!💗

Dale E. Lynn, OTR/L

Patient Care Coordinator

Jacob Hatfield, COTA/L is the Finance Manager at TheraTree. " Why am I advocating for OT? Because I know the value of OT Practitioners, especially OTAs! Occupational Therapy Assistants play an important and valuable role in the delivery of nearly all types of OT services.  Without OTAs, many rural, underserved areas would be further impacted by a lack of access to therapies.  I continue to advocate for our profession and really removing any excuse for not advocating for yourself!" - Mr. Jacob, COTA/L

Dale Lynn has been practicing occupational therapy for over 20 years.  Dale graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Occupational Therapy in 1998 at Indiana University Medical Center. He began specializing in pediatric services upon opening Lynn Occupational in 2000. As an OT practitioner, Dale has served in many organizations throughout the state including the Kentucky Board of Licensure for Occupational Therapy (board member) and the Kentucky Occupational Therapy Association (President).

Our History

TheraTree was formally known as Lynn Occupational Therapy owned by Dale Lynn, OTR/L who established the company in 2000. The family own and operated company provided OT services to the Owensboro Area community for 15 years before outgrowing it's name by offering speech and physical therapy services. The need for rebranding the business provided an opportunity for Jessica Hatfield, MS, OTR/L to purchase the company and create TheraTree to encompass the many services provided. Although ownership has change, Jessica and Dale continue to work together provide the best care for clients and a collaborative working environment for employees. Together Dale and Jessica have established an incredible relationship with area pediatricians as well as many families in the special needs community.
