Hi there, I am Anandé Ferreira
A pediatric occupational therapist, speaker, guest lecturer, consultant, author and play enthusiast with a special interest in playfulness and sensory integration. Upon completion of my Masters degree focused on playfulness, I presented my research at the World Federation of Occupational Therapy Congress and I have published in the Occupational Therapy International Journal. I am a guest lecturer in play assessments, playfulness and play interventions in the Occupational Therapy Department at the University of Cape Town. I run continued professional courses and workshops for qualified occupational therapists on these aforementioned topics as well.
Recognizing the critical role of caregivers in their child’s play and development, I aim to support and empower parents, caregivers, schools and organisations with knowledge and practical strategies to enable children to reach their full play potential.
Come (re)learn to trust in the process of play again!
