Who Am I?

I am a well-established practice in the northern suburbs of Cape Town. Our team currently consist of two therapists and we provide individual and group therapy either at the practice or various known daycares and schools. Occupational therapy assists children to develop their foundational skills including that of sensory, gross and fine motor, cognitive and perceptual skills, needed to achieve success in everyday life activities. For a child, everyday life activities consist of playing, going to school, dressing, washing, eating, socializing and sleeping amongst others.

What is my role and services in paediatrics?

I use a combination of Neurodevelopmental, sensory integration and sensory motor approaches for individual clients ages 0 – 10. I provide in-depth assessments and treatments for all children referred. My special interest includes neurological and genetic conditions, early intervention, high risk infants and general developmental delays. I am also involved in general and fine motor stimulation groups and educational workshops for moms and teachers on the stimulation of children and classroom support.

I provide therapy at:

• Practice address: Stellenberg Therapy Center (on the grounds of the Stellenberg Dutch Reformed Church)
