Liz Humanitzki, MS, OTR/L, C/NDT
Liz received her Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Motor Development and minor in Psychology from the University of South Carolina. She then went on to get her Master’s degree in Occupational therapy from MUSC.
Liz knew early on that she wanted to pursue a career in OT, having a younger brother with Autism and Cerebral Palsy. Having such a close connection observing how OT makes a difference in every-day life and her interest in the pediatric population, this has driven her to provide the best care possible for all children and their families.
Liz has experience with Handwriting Without Tears, visual rehabilitation for pediatrics and targeting feeding concerns with Oral Placement theory and infant oral motor feeding, and a particular interest and passion for serving children with neurological conditions, particularly with cerebral palsy or brachial plexus injuries. She spent 2019 training and was certified in Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) for children with neuromuscular disorders and has extensive experience implementing Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) and upper extremity casting and splinting with multiple age groups. Liz enjoys supervising Level I and Level II students and is currently in collaboration with MUSC doctoral students to establish multiple comprehensive modified intensive CIMT protocols for Coastal Therapy and for incorporation in group settings!
Outside of work, you can find Liz out exploring with her dog or looking for her next travel adventure.
