Carolyn “Carrie” Schmitt, OTD, OTR/L

Carrie holds a B.S. in Occupational Therapy from the Medical College of Georgia as well as a Doctor of Occupational Therapy from Boston University. Before joining the STAR Institute clinical team, Carrie worked in a variety of pediatric settings in Georgia, New York, and South Carolina.

Carrie is passionate about sensory health and evidence-based practice and is continually seeking to further her knowledge. She has enjoyed continuing education on topics including sensory integration theory, infant massage instruction (IAIM), Integrated Listening Systems (iLs), and Handwriting without Tears. She is NDT trained in pediatrics by the Neurodevelopmental Treatment Association and has completed STAR Institute Level 1 Mentorship, STAR Proficiency Level 1, and STAR Institute Level 2 Mentorship. She currently serves on both the clinical team and STAR Faculty. Her STAR Faculty contribution is hosting STAR’s podcast, Making Sense. You can listen here.

As a wife and mother to four children, one of Carrie’s favorite things about working in the STAR model is coming alongside families to learn more about their child’s unique, individual strengths and challenges through family education and research-based intervention.
