The team at the Baby Therapy Centre consists of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech-language therapists who work within a transdisciplinary or interdisciplinary treatment approach.
We assist children from birth to 3 years of age to overcome barriers through various techniques, and to prevent secondary handicaps and fixed disabilities. Early Intervention services include individual therapy sessions, addressing each child’s specific needs, and group therapy sessions, often including participation of parents, thereby optimising learning and interaction skills. Our approach is holistic and a transdisciplinary team of therapists is involved according to the needs of each child.
The Baby Therapy Centre was established in 1994 as an Early Intervention service to improve the development of all babies and toddlers. The children’s parents and caregivers are guided and supported in handling of their children. The Baby Therapy Centre is a non-profit organisation, founded and run on Christian principles. We are situated in Lynnwood, Pretoria, and are involved in providing therapy services on an outreach basis. The Baby Therapy Centre was established with the support of the Johanniter Orden (the German equivalent of the Order of St. John). The Baby Therapy Centre is governed by a Board consisting of volunteers. Our current Board Members are:
