Ms. Denise Yost, MS, OTR/L

Denise Yost gained a Masters degree in Occupational Therapy from Domincan College as a second career and has been practicing school based therapy with Ridgefield Board of Education since September of 2000.  After school she practices as a home based early intervention occupational therapist working closely with families. Additionally, Ms.  Yost is an adjunct Occupational Therapy Professor at Eastwick College in Ramsey NJ.     

She is currently based at The Shaler School working with young children ages 3-8. During her early years at this district, Ms. Yost served several years working with a broad age range of  students (3-21) in all schools, including students of The Ridgefiled High School Learning Center Program. Because Ms. Yost has had the experience of working with all ages of work (from early intervention 6 mos to early adulthood into the world of work), she brings the unique experience of a top down approach: understanding where they come from, where they are going, and what is needed to get there.
