I am an Occupational Therapist working in the field of Paediatrics. I treat children from the ages of 4 months to 18 years old. I am also specialised in Sensory Integration and did my specialisation through the University of Southern California in Lisbon, Portugal in 2008.
I have experience working with children with Sensory Integration difficulties, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Down’s Syndrome, Developmental delays and postural/ handwriting difficulties.
I have over 10 years experience working in this field and I am extremely passionate about the work that I do! I am always eager to go on courses and to learn more to improve my expertise. I also have a passion for educating parents and educators. Other work that I have previously done includes supervising fourth year Occupational Therapy Students for the University of Kwazulu Natal. I have also written a few articles for the Living and Loving magazine. I am also involved in consulting with the Toptots mother and child stimulation groups.
I do a small amount of voluntary work for a baby adoption home in Durban North and this involves assessing and treating the babies for developmental delays.
