Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) is an allied health profession which abides by the regulations set by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). OT’s use meaningful activities to achieve therapeutic goals which equip individuals or groups with the necessary skills to participate optimally in their occupations. These include: member of the family, work, play, scholastic performance, social-emotional, self-care (dressing, eating, sleeping etc.) or parenting. Occupational Therapists specialize in a number of different areas, including paediatrics; physical rehabilitation; mental health; geriatrics and community empowerment. Sensory Kidzone specializes in paediatrics.

Paediatric Occupational Therapy

The areas that a child often struggles with include climbing on playground equipment, gross / fine motor skills, dominance, making friends, sitting still, concentration, being picky eaters, following instructions, left handedness, crossing the midline, muscle tone, postural control, copying from the book or board, being clumsy, cutting and hand writing difficulties. Challenges in these areas could potentially lead to difficulties in behaviour, concentration and emotional control. At Sensory Kidzone we use a range of techniques to address these difficulties including Ayre’s Sensory Integration, DIR®/Floortime, Tomatis® and Interactive Metronome
