International speaker and songwriter Genevieve Jereb, O.T., is an Australian-born pediatric occupational therapist who presents on sensory processing disorders world wide and online. She collaborates and presents both nationally and internationally with leading clinicians, teachers, authors and lecturers who share Gen’s passion for helping children be “all of who they really are.”
“Gen is an extraordinary Pediatric Occupational Therapist with the additional gift of creativity… (she has a) voice and enthusiasm that charms children and adults.” — Patti Oetter (Internationally recognized lecturer in the field of Sensory Integration and author of the M.O.R.E. book)
As an international speaker Genevieve is most known for her course, Getting Kids in Sync — recently renamed The Traffic Jam in My Brain — an empowering and practical workshop for professionals and parents who work with children with special learning differences, highlighting the use of rhythmicity, respiration, relationship, play and movement.
“As a teacher and a clinician, Genevieve is truly unique. She has a special way of connecting with children as well as relating to their parents. She can make the most complex information understandable to parents, thus empowering them to advocate for their children across environments. Genevieve is creativity in motion. She can make the mundane seem remarkable and the dull seem shining.” — Vital Links
During her ten years in the USA Genevieve was co-owner of the cutting edge treatment facility, Therapeutic Associates in Madison, WI.
She is founder and director of Sensory Tools USA and Sensory Tools Australia — organizations that offer high-quality courses, online seminars and cutting-edge information, products and resources in child development.
As a children’s singer and songwriter, Ms. Jereb is most known for her well-loved children music designed to support the child from the “inside out.” With over 30,000 CDs sold, her released recordings, include No Worries – Songs for Sensory Regulation, Say G’day!, Cool Bananas, and Jumpin’ Jellybeans. These CDs provide parents, professionals, caregivers and educators with fun and engaging, ready-to-use rhythmic songs and activities to support learning, transitions, sleep, attention, focus and self regulation for all children.
Many of the songs on recordings performed by Genevieve Jereb have been inspired by her work at Avanti – Camp St. Croix in Hudson Wisconsin USA (near the Twin Cities of Minneapolis / St. Paul). Avanti is a camp for children with Sensory Processing Disorders. Therapists throughout the United States volunteer their time annually to support these children for success in a camp experience.
