Academic Profile

Caitlin Stanford has been a practicing Occupational Therapist for 14 years. Her primary concentration is in pediatrics, having served as a public-school occupational therapist for the duration of her practice. In addition to school-based practice, Dr. Stanford has experience in pediatric home care and in outpatient clinics per diem. After earning her Occupational Therapy Doctorate in 2018 from Quinnipiac University- in Hamden CT- she worked as an adjunct, teaching MS Occupational Therapy students the foundations of pediatric practice.

While serving as a school-based occupational therapist, Dr. Stanford was instrumental in implementing the district’s Fieldwork Education program, serving both OT and OTA students from surrounding institutions. She was recognized as an Outstanding Fieldwork Educator by the New Jersey Occupational Therapy Association and was awarded an NJOTA acknowledgment by a former fieldwork student. 

Alongside her various practice experience, Dr. Stanford has developed research in pediatric sleep practices, has given guest lectures in various occupational therapy programs, presented to staff within the public school system, presented at the NJOTA State conference, and has worked on various publications.

In her current role as the Clinical Director of the Occupational Therapy Doctoral Program at FDU, Dr. Stanford is excited to begin a new chapter of networking with practitioners in the field to provide students with valuable experiential learning opportunities.
