Daniele Fallon, OTR/L is the owner and sole practitioner of Boise Outdoor OT in Boise, Idaho. Her practice provides direct, individual, outdoor occupational therapy services for young children along the Boise River and within her outdoor mud kitchen facility. In addition to providing OT services, she also runs a Mud Kitchen Kids and Loose Parts Play Enrichment group during the spring, summer, and fall to promote increased outdoor play and sensory integration.
Daniele has experience working in skilled nursing facilities, teletherapy, sensory gyms, and as a contract school OT for the New York Department of Education - the largest and most diverse school system in the US. Upon moving to Boise, she became an outdoor educator at Everwild Forest School and continues to serve on their advisory committee.
Daniele was contracted by Idaho AEYC to create teaching modules for early educators on the benefits of outdoor play, sensory integration in the outdoors, and how to set up a mud kitchen in early educational classrooms - in addition to presenting these topics at their professional development institutes throughout Idaho.
This fall she is excited to partner with the College of Western Idaho to support incoming fieldwork I students to promote the benefits of outdoor play to future occupational therapy assistants. Daniele is the proud mother of 2 girls, loves living on the river with her husband, and has a deep love and respect for the therapeutic qualities of nature.
