Sensory Matters OT is a paediatric occupational therapy practice which was established in 2008 by Jacklynn Langkilde and Jacqui Jorge. We are passionate about our work in paediatrics with a special interest in early intervention. Although we have a strong focus on sensory integration; function, independence and quality of life are important considerations and are addressed in therapy.
We work with children and families of all ages and challenges. Our aim is to support children and their families to reach their potential through education, support and therapy. A culture of learning and keeping up with current knowledge is important to us and we thus regularly attend workshops and courses. Our therapists are trained in Sensory Integration, Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT), Therapeutic Listening, MAES Therapy, SOS Feeding, Makaton (level 1), CVI Range. Having a range of tools assists us in offering the most holistic service to our clients. We hope to interact with our clients as ‘sensible navigators’ – helping to prioritise therapy, providing advice in creating a ‘road map’ to follow, as families make their decisions to best support their children.
Sensory Matters consists of full-time and part-time Occupational Therapists who are passionate about their work and together form a dynamic and passionate team.
We offer individual and group therapy sessions dependant on the child and family’s needs and means. Sessions range between 30 and 60 minutes and are usually held once or twice a week for a period of 6 months afterwhich a reassessment is conducted and recommendations are made.
