Next month we are delighted to welcome Megan Faure BSc, OT, OTR to deliver her internationally renowned, two-day, Baby Sense workshop to our members.
Megan is an Occupational Therapist who has worked in paediatrics in the USA and South Africa for more than a decade. She regularly lectures to both professionals and parents on various baby and childcare issues, in particular how to help infants with extreme fussiness, poor sleep habits and feeding problems. She is the founder and chairperson of the Infant Sensory Integration Training group, which provides courses for therapists to equip them to understand and treat infant behaviour.
Megan is a journalist and author in the field of child psychology, parenting and child development. Passionate about her work and research into the field of infant development, particularly sensory integration, she felt that an understanding of the way a baby processes her world and the impact the sensory world has on sleep, feeding and development needed to be communicated to parents, so she co- authored the book Baby Sense, which has now been translated into 4 languages and is a best seller. She followed this book’s success with Sleep Sense, Feeding Sense and Your Sensory Baby.
Megan writes for several regional and national publications in the UK and South Africa and has made numerous television appearances in South Africa. She delivers talks on baby care at NCT conferences and at the Baby Show in the UK and at many locations across South Africa. She runs a practice in Cape Town where she sees babies and toddlers with sleep problems and sensory processing difficulties. She is married with a son and two daughters.
