MCH welcomes new occupational therapist
October 8, 2013

Cheryl Boop, MS, OTR/L is the new Occupational Therapist at Madison County Hospital (MCH).

 

Cheryl brings more than 13 years of occupational therapy experience to MCH.  She has worked with clients with neurological issues, including Autism/Asperger's, Cerebral Palsy and Nonverbal Learning Disorder.  She has also been involved with community outreach, leading a social skills group, developing a feeding group and conducting public education seminars.

 

"Helping people live their own lives more effectively and efficiently is empowering to the client," said Cheryl.  "My philosophy for occupational therapy follows a client and family-centered approach that involves the caregiver and family, as well as the client, for optimal success."

 

As an occupational therapist, Cheryl works with infants through adults, helping them live their lives to the fullest.  With infants and children, she works with sensory integration, social skills, feeding skills and reaching developmental milestones.  With adults, she works to help them live as independently as possible.

 

Cheryl is certified in the Beckman Oral Motor Protocol and the SOS Approach to Feeding.  She also has experience with Oral-Pharyngeal Motility (swallow studies for pediatrics) and has worked successfully with children weaning from tube feeding as well as "picky" eaters.

 

Cheryl received a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from the College of Wooster and earned her Bachelor and Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia.  As an occupational therapist, she has worked for the Ty Cobb Healthcare System and Athens Regional Medical Center, both in Georgia.  Before coming to MCH, she was the Preschool Occupational Therapist for Cooperative School Services in Rensselaer, Indiana, serving eight school corporations in the rural northwest Indiana area.

 

In addition to helping others, Cheryl's hobbies singing, traveling, history and reading.  She also enjoys spending time with her husband David, who she met at the College of Wooster.
