Martine Stallinga

Martine is a pediatric occupational therapist and is specialized in sensory processing. Ergo Active started working and in 2006 followed a training course on sensory stimulus processing.

She works at a private practise and at several special education schools and also sees many children in regular education.

In recent years, she has specialized in sensory processing, sleeping problems and toiletting problems.

She regularly gives courses on sensory processing, together with Basje. In addition, she is part of a child team; a collaboration of several disciplines that together seek solutions for children with needs in multiple areas.

The collaboration with SenSo is a nice addition, whereby both parents and teachers get a clear picture of sensory processing in simple language and can also get started immediately with practical tools.
