Kelly Beins

BHSc, OTR/L, SI

Kelly Beins is a seasoned occupational therapist with more than 28 years of clinical experience, including 18 years with certification in sensory integration. Passionate about combining sensory integration and mental health, Kelly believes in evidence-informed interventions and truly understanding the relationship between mechanisms of change that occur during use of an integrative therapeutic approach.

Specializing in sensory processing and applications of polyvagal theory in OT, Kelly is sought after as an international speaker, has published two children's books, and was named Autism Parenting Magazine's Top OT for two consecutive years.

Kelly's expertise is derived from developing and launching child and adolescent services within a community mental health setting and supervising OT services at The Jefferson School and Residential Treatment Center, as well as working in a variety of OT settings across the continuum of care, where she consulted, directed, provided program design, and offered direct services.

After 16 years of serving others' visions, Kelly founded her own multitherapist private clinic, which she directed for just under a decade. Under Kelly's direction, her team supported children with a broad range of developmental, mental health, and behavioral challenges using an intensive model. In partnership with the families, they proudly offered practical and advanced solutions across the life span. At present, in addition to building a global mentorship program that makes best practices more accessible for other private practice OTs, Kelly now serves Unyte as their clinical practice manager, where she is responsible for ensuring that clinical rigor and best practices are fostered among providers.

Foundations of Sound and Movement for an Integrative OT Practice

Presented by Kelly Beins, BHSc, OTR/L, SI

Foundations of Sound and Movement for an Integrative OT Practice

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 45 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 35 Minutes

Occupational therapy (OT) is a holistic profession, yet the scope of OT practice, the pace at which neuroscience is advancing, and the constraints of most healthcare settings can make it challenging for even advanced therapists to effectively incorporate both top-down and bottom-up treatment approaches while remaining rooted in well-grounded clinical reasoning. Music-based interventions are emerging as promising rehabilitation strategies. Moreover, music paired with movement is increasingly being used as an integrative, evidence-informed way to bridge physical, emotional, and cognitive health for clients of any age.

The first course of this two-part series summarizes evidence and knowledge from various fields of study, including neurobiology, polyvagal theory, and rehabilitation, to differentiate an integrative practice as essential and distinct from other models of practice. In the second course, learners will translate this content into all aspects of the therapeutic process with takeaways that are immediately actionable. Both courses offer case stories, master clinician interviews, and demonstration of real-world strategies to explore applications of sound and movement as one means of building an effective integrative practice.
