Martha Cowan is an Occupational Therapist specializing in pediatric care. Martha has focused her entire 40 year career on pediatric care and is committed to improving the lives of infants and children.
Martha earned her degree in Occupational Therapy from Colorado State University. Throughout her career she has worked with children of all ages and served a five county rural area as the only credentialed service provider for the Birth to Three Early Intervention Program.
She enjoys working with children and their families, for a variety of diagnoses including cerebral palsy, down syndrome, autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, hypotonia, handwriting, and genetic anomalies. Her desire to meet the needs of all OT children, have led to certifications in Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) for infants and children, infant massage instructor and the Brazelton Neonatal Assessment Scale. Martha’s passion has always been to identify each child’s needs and to provide functional and purposeful intervention.
In her free time, she and her husband enjoy hiking, cross country skiing, fishing (no ice fishing for Martha, she bakes cookies for neighborhood fishing friends) and family time with their two daughters and their families, including five grandchildren. She relaxes by reading, needlework, and sewing projects for her grandchildren.
She is thrilled to begin her next chapter with HAMH and to share her experience and ambition for improving the lives of infants and children. Martha will work with Physical Therapist, Leine Wollwert and Speech Therapist, Connie Kelsey to provide a comprehensive and cohesive multidisciplinary pediatric team.
