Jennifer specialises in therapy programs and assessments for children.
I am a big kid at heart and love to find ways of making therapy fun and enjoyable.Every child is unique and therefore it is crucial to create tailored programmes that work within the family environment. I use research evidence to support my therapy treatments and play to make them enjoyable and meaningful. My philosophy as a therapist is to empower children and their families to overcome challenges and successfully attain their goals.
