My child’ teacher has recommended he does OT. What now?
Ask your teacher for the details of three occupational therapists in your area or contact OTASA at firstname.lastname@example.org who may be able to guide you if you live in South Africa.
Liani, can I bring my child to you for an evaluation?
My OT practice is based at two schools and I do not currently see children who are not learners of these schools. You may contact Mari-Louise Olivier who sees children at her OT practice at Die Wilgers, Pretoria East at email@example.com.
We live overseas where there are not freely available therapy services. Can you help us with stimulation ideas to help my daughter’s development?
Have a look at OT Online where I can do an evaluation and home stimulation ideas all through the use of email.
Our school requires a stimulation program that we can do with our little ones.
Have a look at Senseplosion. These are tailor made sensory stimulation programs according to the learners’ ages and which are done once a week by an educator at school in groups.
