Occupational therapists assist persons of all ages to participate in and enjoy activities that have meaning and purpose (American Occupational Therapy Association, 2004)
In working with children, the role of the occupational therapist is to enable children to function optimally in their occupations which include activities of daily living, typical school and academic tasks, play and leisure activities by addressing the underlying components of function which involves motor, praxis and sensory–perceptual performance skills. (American Occupational Therapy Association, 2008)
I graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2006 with a BSc OT. I have been working in Pediatrics for the past 10 years. I completed my Master’s degree by dissertation in Occupational therapy in 2017 and I am busy with additional training in the field of sensory integration. My practice was established in 2014. I have a passion for children - to see them learn, grow and reach their potential.
I am registered with the HPCSA and am a member of OTASA, SAISI and INSTOPP.
