Kaylee has gained most of her experience working as an Occupational Therapist at public special schools in the Western Cape. Her experience includes working with learners with learning challenges and diagnoses including hearing and intellectual impairments, autism spectrum disorder and developmental delays. She also enjoys working with learners with sensory processing challenges or those who require intervention in fine motor, gross motor and visual perceptual skills development.
“I am passionate about working with autistic learners and previously formed part of a specialized WCED outreach team involved in assessment and placement of autistic learners, as well as training and support for school staff and families. I especially enjoy hands on one-to-one therapy time with children as well as their families and caregivers. I am currently obtaining my qualification in Sensory Integration training, and am also training as a communication and regulation partner using Spelling to Communicate with minimally speaking/ non- speaking learners.”
BSc. Occupational Therapy with distinction, University of Cape Town, 2013
