Meg Faure
Megan Faure BSc, OT, OTR is an Occupational Therapist who has worked in paediatrics in the USA and South Africa for more than a decade. She is an active member of the South African Institute for Sensory ntegration (SAISI), which is the body that oversees all therapists specialising in Sensory Integration in South Africa. It is affiliated with the Sensory Integration organizations in the USA.
As well as being a lecturer for SAISI on the treatment and theory of sensory integration disorders, Megan 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. Megan 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 ntegration, Meg 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. She co- authored Baby Sense which has been translated into 4 languages and is a best seller. She followed this book’s success with Sleep Sense and Feeding Sense. Megan writes for several regional and national publications in the UK and South Africa. She has made numerous television appearances in South Africa. She delivers talks on child rearing at NCT conferences and at the Baby Show in the UK and at many locations across South Africa.
