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 .
We work with children and families of all ages and challenges. Our aim is to support children and their families reach their potential through education and therapy. A culture of learning and keeping up with current knowledge is important to us and we thus regularly attend workshops and courses and are trained in Sensory Integration, Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT), Therapeutic Listening and Premature infants (being accredited through Little Steps cc)
Sensory Matters consists of 6 full-time and 3 part-time Occupational Therapists who are passionate about their work and together we 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 after which a reassessment is conducted and recommendations are made.
