In Loving Memory Of

Tracy Keith Lang

1983 - 2009

Always and forever,

in my heart.

TRACE Therapeutics, LLC was founded in 2009 by Sara Lang, OTR/L. Sara earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of New Hampshire. She currently holds licenses to practice in New Hampshire and Vermont and is registered by The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy.

 

Sara feels a strong connection to the community she grew up in and is dedicated to improving access to quality services for families in need. For the past 6 years she has provided pediatric occupational therapy services to children of all ages, abilities, and diagnoses in school settings, homes and through outpatient referral.

 

Sara is passionate about improving the quality of life and functional independence of children. She is equally passionate about the role of behavior as it affects a childs' ability to successfully interact with their environment and peers. Over time Sara has developed a special interest in working with children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and their families. 

 

To gain the appropriate advanced knowledge and training to provide support to this currently underserved population, Sara is working towards a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction: Autism Studies Option (M.Ed.)  Following completion of coursework and field experience she will qualify to sit for Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certification. She is also pursuing Board Certification in Pediatrics through The American Occupational Therapy Association.  

 

TRACE Therapeutics, LLC was thrilled to welcome Lisa Thompson, COTA/L to the practice in the fall of 2013. She brings with her a huge love for children, a want for them to succeed, and a will to do it using very hands-on creative approaches. Lisa spent ten years of her professional career dedicated to meeting the needs of children and adolescents in a variety of settings; with a passion for supporting academic success and fostering independent living skills.  


Lisa graduated second in her class from River Valley Community College’s (RVCC) Occupational Therapy Assistant program. She was the recipient of the Joan Larson Holcombe award for “most outstanding OTA student and the best representative of an OTA.”  Prior to attending RVCC she attended Lyndon State College for education and spent 6 years as a para-educator. Lisa worked with an array of students, some of whom had learning impairments, behavioral disorders, emotional disorders and those on the autism spectrum. She also worked for a foster care agency supporting adolescents with psychosocial disabilities live more functional and independent lives. She thrives in environments that allow her to use her special skill set to support personal growth.   


In addition to her current position at TRACE Therapeutics, Lisa serves as site coordinator for an after school program. She is responsible for implementing intervention and enrichment activities using a hands-on, play based approach to facilitate growth and learning. She also provides rehabilitation services to adults in a skilled nursing facility.   


Family is of utmost importance to Lisa. When she is not working they enjoy traveling, exploring new places and trying new things. They love the zoo, museums, beaches and watching the Red Sox play. Lisa loves to read and scrapbook all of their adventures in her free time.
