Savannah Alderman, OTD, OTR/L, earned her Doctorate degree in occupational therapy from Belmont University and completed her undergraduate degree in Sports Medicine from Union University. She was born and raised in the Brentwood/Franklin area and knew that she wanted to raise her kids here, too. Her and her husband currently live in Thompson’s Station. She has been an occupational therapist at our clinic since 2017.
Savannah completed her doctoral residency in Neply, Haiti, where she developed a caregiver education program that has continued to be sustainable. From her experience with national and international missions, Savannah has developed a passion for adoption, foster care, and trauma-informed care within the scope of occupational therapy. Savannah has experience working with children who have autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, congenital disorders, genetic disorders, sensory processing disorder, fine and visual motor delays, and developmental delays. Savannah is certified in ILS (Integrated Listening Systems), SSP (Safe & Sound Protocol), and the SOS Approach to Feeding.
Savannah enjoys traveling, drinking coffee, reading, and spending time with her friends and family. Her and her husband are currently in the adoption process and are thrilled to be bringing home their three daughters (6, 5, and 3) from Taiwan in the summer of 2020.
