Amy Berryman, OTR, MSHSA is an adjunct professor for the Creighton University occupational therapy program in neurorehabilitation and currently works at Barrows Neurological Institute in Phoenix, AZ. She has worked throughout the continuum of care in traumatic brain injury for over 20 years, including inpatient, outpatient, and transitional living settings. She has presented extensively on vision rehabilitation in acquired brain injury and is published in the areas of vision, interdisciplinary team approaches to rehabilitation, and vocational rehabilitation. Additionally, she has advanced training in NDT techniques, serial casting, and other modalities to facilitate neuro-muscular recovery. Amy completed her occupational therapy degree in 2000 at the University of Oklahoma, and graduated with her master’s degree in health services administration from Regis University in 2007.
Karen Rasavage, OTR, CBIST currently works as a Clinical Professional Education Coordinator, Vision Clinic Coordinator, and Living Well with Brain Injury Committee Leader at Craig Hospital. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1999 and has worked throughout the acquired brain injury continuum of care including inpatient, outpatient, and transitional living settings. She specializes in collaborating with neuro-optometrists, and places emphasis on integrating occupational therapy concepts such as sensory integration and activity analysis into visual rehabilitation with children and adults following brain injury. She also has specialized training in NDT, Kinesiotaping, and SAEBO applications for enhancing upper extremity function after brain injury. Karen has been published in the areas of interdisciplinary rehabilitation, vocational rehabilitation, and vision.
