Very knowledgeable and caring! If you need someone for an evaluation or continued therapy, I’d highly recommend SPROUT OT.
Tracey is an expert in her field. My daughter has dyslexia and has received academic tutoring for many years. But, Tracey educated me about aspects of dyslexia outside of schoolwork, which we were not addressing, and she provided fun therapy sessions for my daughter in those areas. Tracey also has an understanding of the emotions associated with dyslexia, which made for an instant connection between my daughter and her. I highly recommend Tracey for both her therapy skills and her ability to connect easily with children. She’s the best!
We had struggled with how to help our daughter with her sensory issues for several months. Tracey was the answer to our prayers! Her guidance and advice has helped tremendously! She truly cares about her clients. We would highly recommend SPROUT OT!
This summer, we wanted to start treatment for dysgraphia for my 12 year old daughter. I contacted several outpatient OT facilities to learn about their treatment approaches. Sprout was one of the 2 facilities that returned my call. Beyond that, Tracey took the time to speak with me about some strategies that might be an option for my daughter. Before we even met up with her, Tracey seemed to have a connection with us. When we came for our initial evaluation, Tracey worked diligently to connect with my somewhat introverted 12 year old and to make her feel really comfortable to work on something that caused her embarrassment.
My daughter worked with Tracey over the summer to improve her awareness of errors she was making in her writing and to learn strategies that she could use at school to improve the quality and quantity of her writing.
This week, one of my daughter’s teachers contacted me to let me know that my daughter was selected to attend a creative writing workshop based on a poem that she wrote and submitted. Before working with Tracey, I don’t think my daughter would have wanted to try to write something for submission and if she had, her product would not have been nearly as nuanced. Since my daughter has worked with Tracey, the physical process of writing has become so much easier that she can focus on the creative process instead of the formation of letters.
Before we started working with Tracey, I was concerned that my daughter would be embarrassed or self-conscious about working with an OT, but Tracey went out of her way to make this treatment something that empowered my daughter.
Tracey came in and saved our lives when our little boy was having major feeding issues. The daycare where our son was attending was insisting that he would need to be able to feed himself in the next classroom up and that they would no longer be feeding him bottles. We panicked because our son was gagging at even the sight of solid foods and was refusing to try anything besides pureed baby food. He was behind on the eating curve and we were concerned with his health, nutrition and how he would be fed in the next classroom. We were at a loss and weren’t understanding what to do and what our son was going through. Tracey talked with us for long time, met with us, and helped us design a plan of attack on how to get him back on track. She evaluated him and gave us great tips based on his exact personal challenges. SPROUT OT was a fantastic experience that gave us the knowledge and confidence we needed to work more successfully with our son. He is now eating solids, not everything of course, but well on his way and we are all feeling happier about the future. We will continue to practice what Tracey has taught us and will continue to work with her on any future developmental or behavioral needs that arise in the coming years. Thanks for everything you did for us Tracey, for truly caring so much for our son and devoting yourself to our success.

Tracey Levy has been a great blessing to our son and family for the past 2 school years. She is responsive to our son’s needs, flexible in her approach and the ultimate professional. Not only does she have a solid understanding of my son’s occupational and sensory needs, but she also has a deep understanding of other arenas of child development and how they interact with one another. Thus, she works with the ‘whole child’ if you will. She seamlessly works in a one-on-one capacity but is also effective in the classroom. She has been a valuable member of my child’s team, working with teachers to help them best understand my child’s specific needs as well as providing appropriate classroom accommodations and supports. Her caring demeanor coupled with her clear acumen are demonstrated in my child’s progress.
