Welcome to OT World
Hi I’m Jennifer and I’m an occupational therapist based in Lithgow, NSW.
I recently relocated to Lithgow to raise my young family in this pristine and beautiful part of the Blue Mountains and Central West area of NSW. Before relocating I lived in Sydney, Singapore, Griffith, and Dubai and enjoyed helping children and adults from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds with therapeutic consultations, disability equipment prescriptions and home modifications. I love Auslan, the language of the deaf community in Australia, and completed Certificates l,ll,lll,lV in Auslan.
I am a qualified OT with a Masters from Sydney University, and my speciality is paediatrics. For more than 13 years, I have worked alongside families and young people with developmental delays, Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD/ADD, Dyspraxia, and Down syndrome to achieve more and enjoy participating in their everyday life.
While in Dubai I established a feeding clinic for young children who were fussy eaters, working closely with speech and language therapists and behaviour therapists to uncover physiological barriers including swallowing disorders, and to overcome resistance to trying new foods.
Although I was diagnosed with Dyslexia as a child, I love writing and I have written two books related to Occupational Therapy. “Walk with Me” and “Senseable Travel: Travel Tips for Families Affected by Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder and Developmental Disorders” are available through the Shop page to download.
I welcome feedback through the Blog section and hope you find useful information there.
