Therapists in Midrand
·Full occupational therapy evaluation of child (90 – 120 minutes)
·Interview with parents – (30 minutes)
·Feedback with parents – (60 minutes)
Treatment is usually scheduled once or twice a week for 30 or 45 minutes, according to the child’s needs. Homework will be given with each session either in hard copy or on the SpecialT app. Therapy takes time and we ask that you allow 6 months or 24 sessions of therapy before a re-assessment is conducted.

ReadLS™ is a unique computer-based programme that improves reading proficiency through the integration of ocular-motor control, visual processing, auditory listening, and the vestibular system. The most important aspect here is the integration of skills. Often a child has developed the separate skills, but they lack the ability to use everything together. This is where ReadLS™ plays such a crucial role.
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is an evidence-based assessment and training tool proven to improve rhythm and timing, cognition, attention, focus, memory, executive functioning, as well as motor & sensory skills. It combines the concept of a musical metronome with advanced computerised technology to improve the foundational skills necessary for learning and development.
The Tomatis® method was developed by French Doctor and Researcher, Alfred Tomatis. The Tomatis® method uses advanced technology and is a natural approach to neurosensory stimulation as it works through sound. The listening programmes are designed so that the music and voice can be changed to capture the brain’s attention and develop motor, emotional and cognitive skills.
Learning Breakthrough Programme
Dr. Frank Belgau developed a tool for NASA which is now available to us. The training facilitates visual-vestibular integration and visual-spatial skills.
·The Learning breakthrough programme provides complete workouts for the visual, auditory and vestibular (balance) systems.
·The way the sessions are designed ensures dynamic interaction between these systems with frequency, intensity and timing.
·It further improves ocular motor function because of tracking skills required in activities.
·It supports interhemispheric organization because of the way the two sides of the body is used together.
·It improves sequencing and timing skills.
Since starting ReadLS, we have seen a great improvement in our daughter’s reading. She now read with more fluency and confidence. The anxiety and hesitance that normally came with reading has abated. Thanks Ingrid and ReadLS.
