Mimi French

Occupational Therapist


Occupational Therapist Mimi French has been practicing pediatric occupational therapy for 37 years, starting at Heartspring in 2000.

Mimi has expertise in sensory processing, fine motor, visual motor and self-help skills. She has worked extensively with children with autism, Down syndrome, general developmental delays and their families. Mimi has presented “Sensory Processing and Self-Regulation” to the SLP - masters level autism class at Wichita State University for 10 years. She has presented numerous times to families and educators on fine motor development, handwriting, sensory processing and general developmental milestones.

One of the unique aspects of Heartspring Outpatient Pediatric Services is the caretaker involvement with children’s therapy sessions which is critical for carryover and progress. This works well with Mimi’s goals of:

  1. Working together with families to help their child achieve the highest level of skills (fine motor/dexterity, visual motor, coordination, sensory processing, and social skills) for independence in their daily living at home, school and in the community.
  2. Empowering the child to achieve the highest level of independence in daily living skills (attending to tasks, dressing, feeding, hygiene, play)

Mimi earned a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from the University of Missouri in Columbia. She is proud to be a part of the Heartspring team, working together with families to ensure the best quality of life for their child.
