Emma Fricke, M.S., OTR/L graduated from University of Wisconsin, Madison and received her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Rush University. In addition to working at AZA Chicago, Emma has experience with private practice and school settings in Rome and Naples, Italy. She has been working with kids with developmental differences in the home, school, and outpatient settings since 2010. Emma is certified through ICDL and holds a DIR-Basic DIR/Floortime Provider certificate. She believes child development is best supported with a team approach, with the family at the center and makes parents a fundamental part of the therapeutic process. Her philosophy is based around the concept that all children have the
capacity to thrive and through a deeper understanding of the child we can support success and independence in daily life. Outside of AZA, Emma enjoys yoga, reading, and spending time
with friends and family.
