What Denzil's Clients Have to Say

Our son runs into his session with Denzil every week. Denzil is our sons OT for the past seven years. Denzils sessions are always good humoured, very physical and focused on developing our son’s key skills and ability to self-regulate. Denzil understands autism but sees beyond it to what the person is capable of. He uses visual cues and gives clear instructions which is most helpful. Our son is nonverbal and has gross motor/fine motor difficulties but now he enjoys playing basketball, running and cycling his bike ….and we attribute this to Denzil. Over the years Denzil has seamlessly adapted and changed his individual program introducing new challenges to further develop his strengths whilst working on areas for development.
D Keegan, Naas
Incredibly positive impact on our son's development. Our son has a diagnosis of autism and attends Denzil Jacob’s Occupational Therapy Practice weekly. Denzil’s OT intervention has been a lifeline for our son and indeed for our whole family. Denzil has a warm caring attitude and an exemplary respectful demeanor. He displays a firm yet fair approach and amazing energy and skill. He possesses a wealth of knowledge regarding autism and developmental delays in children, and he freely shares his knowledge and expertise. Denzil Jacob’s Occupational Therapy Practice has helped us to realise the extremely beneficial effects OT has on children like our son. This is amplified by the time and care Denzil takes to assess the individual, tailoring exercises and interventions to meet the individual’s needs. Suffice to say that Denzil Jacob’s Occupational Therapy Practice has had, and continues to have, an incredibly positive impact on our son’s development, indeed improving his whole life journey.
