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 integration, 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.
