About us

Child Sense Occupational Therapy is based out of our Leichhardt clinic in the Inner West of Sydney. Child Sense also offers home, community and school based intervention where appropriate.
Child Sense offers occupational therapy services for children aged 0-18 years. Services are provided to a range of children including those who have Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADD/ADHD, sensory processing differences, coordination difficulties, emotional and behavioural difficulties, developmental delay, specific learning difficulties, difficulties with play and complex needs,handwriting and fine motor concerns
Child Sense aims to provide individualised therapy and programmes to a high standard to facilitate improved function and maximise potential in a child’s daily life.


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.
