Miriam Manela, OTR/L, is a pediatric behavioral expert who has dedicated her life to helping children overcome behavioral, academic, social, and developmental challenges.
Miriam’s mission started in childhood. Her grandparents started America’s first school and camp for children with developmental delays. There, she learned the importance of helping children be free and true to themselves as they explore and grow.
Over the last two decades, Miriam’s creative, integrative treatment approach has helped thousands of children reach their full potential at school, at home and in life.
She is a bestselling author, the legislative co-chair of the New Jersey Occupational Therapy Association (NJOTA), and has three sons of her own.
With Bloom, parents, teachers, and therapists can access Miriam’s unique tools to help the children they care about, no matter where they are in the world.
