Esje Woolfe, MOT, OTR/L

Occupational Therapist
Multidisciplinary Autism Evaluations

Esje Woolfe, MOT, OTR/L, obtained a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy from Pacific University. She has worked in early intervention, clinical and school settings. Esje has also provided private OT services in patient’s homes focusing on fine motor skill development and handwriting. Esje has a vast amount of experience working with children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, developmental delays, emotional and behavioral challenges, feeding challenges, and sensory processing issues. She is trained in Handwriting Without Tears® and Therapeutic Listening.

Esje provides direct observation and testing as a part of multidisciplinary autism evaluations in conjunction with a licensed psychologist. Esje administers the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2), a gold-standard measure for autism in coordination with licensed psychologist, Dr. Brandon Markel. The ADOS-2 helps clinicians to better understand a child’s language, social skills, and development. Esje’s experience as an occupational therapist allows her to fully observe a child’s response and interactions to a series of play-based social situations. Additionally, Esje and Dr. Markel administer several other gold-standard measures and rating scales to determine if a child or teen has autism. By providing thorough, multidisciplinary assessments for autism, parents can fully engage in proper treatment for their child following an evaluation. Many other presenting concerns may also look like autism, such as anxiety, ADHD, language disorders, or sensory processing difficulties. By helping families rule out what is not going on, this helps children get the right type of support, fast. Esje values collaborating with families to support children and teens in their daily lives. In her free time, Esje enjoys baking and spending time with her husband and her two sons.
