My Field of Expertise

I am a very normal occupational therapist, who graduated the four year Occupational Therapy degree program BSc(OT) at the University of Cape Town in 1997. I have a post grad diploma in Sensory Integration.

I started my website purely to help parents and teachers to better understand the issues that kids may struggle with when they start school, and to equip those parents and teachers with activities to promote normal development in order to give kids the best possible start in formal schooling.

The information I have put on my website is there to inform and inspire based on my own experience and observations and discussions with fellow therapists over the years, as well as the years of homeschooling my own three children.

I attempt to keep up with current research and publications, and I try and include relevant references where possible.

When working as an occupational therapist, every therapy session was planned with the needs of that particular child in mind. There was no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Over the years, some activities became my go-to favorites to help address particular issues, and it is these kinds of activities that I attempt to share with parents and teachers on my website and in my e-books.

While I am encouraged by students and therapists who contact me to let me know that my information is helpful in their OT training, my primary purpose in writing is for parents and teachers. I am always honored and delighted when someone links to my website or references it in some way!

Having said all that, I am delighted that you are here, and I trust that my activities and information will be useful to help a child that you are involved with.

Some activities suggested on this website make use of small objects that may cause a choking hazard for young children. Keep small objects out of reach of young children!

Some of the activities require physical activity or exercise. Please only demonstrate these exercises if you are medically fit to do so. Your child should only carry out these activities if he is medically fit to do so. If in doubt, please consult your doctor. And if any activity causes any kind of pain and discomfort to you or your child, stop at once and consult your doctor.

Every effort has been made to give accurate information and suggestions. However, results are entirely dependent on the persons demonstrating and taking part in the activities and games.
