IRENE OCCUPATIONAL & SPEECH THERAPISTS
Welcome to the house of FUN!
Our practice was established by Occupational Therapist, Bridget Hartley in 1998 and has been running since. We look back at over 23 years of working as a dynamic team of therapists. We started our practice in the basement of the Southern Implants Building in Albert Road Irene. We moved Irene Therapy to Jean Ave in 2005 and in 2011 we moved back to the fringes of Irene in Impala Road hence the name Irene Speech and Occupational Therapists. In 2018, we were blessed with a brand new building that we now call HOME.
In our current practice we have Occupational and Speech Therapists. We are all accredited through our respective bodies OTASA and SASHLA. Our OT's specialize in Sensory Integration (Ayres SI), which is a postgraduate qualification obtained through the Institute for Sensory Integration of South Africa. We have a multi-disciplinary team approach and strive for excellence in sensory integration in pediatrics. We are one of the few practices that offer combined sessions with the OT and Speech Therapist together. We also serve as a training facility for other Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy therapists and students.
Striving towards a centre of excellence providing holistic treatment to clients and families rooted in Sensory Integration.
The focus of Irene Occupational & Speech Therapists is to have the child's best interest at heart (during assessments, treatment sessions, consultations) and to provide a professional therapeutic service within the context of sensory integration. The purpose of the resources at Irene Occupational & Speech Therapists (including equipment/books/time/energy) is to assist us in achieving our vision: to provide an excellent service to our clients, and to keep building a positive working environment.
