Our Philosophy

Child Sense aims to provide a family centred, goal directed service for children which addresses all the life occupations of a child including play, sleep, work (school, preschool, day care) and daily living skills (dressing, toileting etc.). We aim to use a child’s strengths to ensure engagement and enjoyment of the therapeutic process. Whilst we firmly believe parents and primary cargivers know their child best, we aim to provide another lense through which a family can turn their extensive knowledge of their child into understanding.

Child Sense aims to provide a multi-faceted intervention service to maximise a child’s outcomes within the capacities of their current support structures.
