Sarah Valeri has 10 years of experience working with children with developmental delays and sensory impairments, as well as with children who have histories of severe trauma. This work has inspired a strong respect for the use of more bodily and sensory focused communication. As a current candidate in the IPTAR Child and Adolescent Program, she combines psycho-dynamic theories within the practical aspects of communicating with children through a wide range of developmental levels. She is also an exhibiting artist.
