Antoine Hodges Jr was born and raised in Concord, North Carolina. He is a graduate COTA from Rowan Cabarrus Community College and he is very excited to be a part of the Speech Tactics team! Antoine has worked with children for many years across different roles such as; an after-school counselor, a 1 on 1 mentor, and now a COTA. Without a doubt, serving children and families through occupational therapy is his passion and purpose in life. Antoine loves to impact the youth and be a mentor to kids whenever the opportunity arises. Antoine’s commitment to the community is a driving force behind his belief that “children are the future, and therefore we must do our best to make the future bright and promising for them!” He is a passionate, determined, charismatic, helpful, and funny individual who goes above and beyond to ensure each child succeeds and reaches their full potential. Antoine embarks on the journey of therapy and growth with children, parents, and anyone else who is involved in the care of the child.
When Antoine is not working with kids, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing basketball, and taking people to the HOOP! Basketball is something Antoine also likes to incorporate in his therapy sessions.
