Sensational Kids’ occupational therapists support children of all ages to address issues affecting their participation in everyday life.  Our occupational therapists combine play and fun with evidence based approaches. Their individual and group programs are developed to address sensory processing challenges, fine and gross motor skills including handwriting, and daily living skills such as toileting, dressing and eating. They also promote confidence, independence and emotional wellbeing for children and families.
