Occupational Therapy Assistant


Hi!!! I am Shananda Richards, a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant. I have just recently relocated to the Chandler area with my husband and three adolescent boys from Wyoming. I received my degree in Occupational Therapy from Casper College, with certifications in Equine Assisted Therapy and Assistive Technology. Recently I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership and Business. I have worked in the educational system for the past seven years with training in sensory integration, sensory regulation, and Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). I enjoy almost any outdoor activity that involves water, playing volleyball, and of course watching my boys play sports. I am so very excited to be a new member of the Autism Academy therapy team and look forward to the adventures that lie ahead.
