Here is what you say about Sensational Kids
Your organisation helped my daughter with her speech. Claire gave the lessons and never wavered in her effort and her excellent patience in what is not an easy job. We really appreciated it. A. Hanway, February 2012.
Sensational Kids has worked wonders with and for our son who has Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Sensational Kids has taken him to new levels in many areas of his life, and continues to do so, and it has been and is fun for him all the way. He is now rising to the challenges of mainstream school, and with Sensational Kids in his corner, he has great support. D. Kennedy. January 2012
I love Sensational Kids because it has been a lifeline for my children, I have had Assessments done in the most professional and friendly manner which is important. My children have been attending Speech and Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy there for a number of years now and I can honestly say it has made a huge difference to both of them, they love going to the Social Skills Group and have made friends. Apart from the children getting the help they need I have also been given a huge amount of help and support by their Therapists, anytime I have had a problem they have given friendly and supportive advice which is appreciated so much. The level of service and care they give is above and beyond the call of duty and I have referred many people to them and I have never heard of one person who doesn't think Sensational Kids is great. I hope that my children will continue to flourish with their help this year. A. Johnston January 2012

Was so happy to read your website. It has offered us the first strand of hope. We are currently going through a 2 yr period of assessments and are awaiting a diagnosis of Dyspraxia for our little boy. Sensational Kids comes highly recommended, we were advised to contact you by Tallaght Hospital
I wanted to just thank you again for a wonderful two days. I have not stopped telling my family and anyone else I meet about all the work and effort you have put into creating 'Sensational Kids.' When I get back to America I will continue to share your story and show the DVD to help inspire others as well as to keep your message and story alive.Thank you so much again and I look forward to January. Tania Ferrandino, OTR/L Program Specialist, Handwriting Without Tears
I wanted to let you know that the Rock, Rap, Tap and learn cd is going down a treat! The children just love it! There are children dancing to the Alphabet boogie who could barely move before
I am a paediatric Occupational Therapist. I happened across your website by chance & I was really impressed the passion & devotion that you exhibit. I think that it is great that you are trying to empower other parents to seek out the best for their children.
I stand in sheer admiration for your vision and all your efforts. I wish the charity the best of luck in the future.
You provide a very neccessary service. Thanks for your hard work.
We are a voluntary agency, providing services to children and adults with physical and learning disabilities. We find your website a wonderful resource
Wow! you are doing amazing things.
Sensational Kids is a great charity, close to my heart because my daughter has DCD and sensory integration disorder.
I recently attended a Handwriting Without Tears course in Naas and was inspired by the aims and foundation of Sensational Kids.
Thank you for the goods which I received. We are very happy with them and with your company’s service. I would like to place an additional order.
Thank you so much for your uplifting e-mail! it has been the first positive and hopeful reply i have received from any agency.
What You Said About The Handwriting Without Tears Workshops
Congratulations on the workshop. It was fantastic. You have done more for me in one year than any other charitable organisation has ever done.
Best day ever in terms of practical things to help my children, not only in terms of just handwriting, but attention and concentration as well. Fantastic for anyone who works with children IMO, special needs or not. Only issue I had with the day is that I didn't bring more cash with me to spend at the shop!
Can i just say that I went to the Handwriting without tears day on Tuesday and visited this shop. Firstly the HWT was BRILLIANT and I would recommend it to anyone who feels that their child may have fine motor difficulties or developmental difficulties that will adversely affect their ability to learn how to write. Or indeed anyone who's child is struggling a little with handwriting. I have a 5 year old and a three year old (who has Down Syndrome) and I reckon both of them will benefit from this. So well done! As far as the shop went, I really was impressed by the range of items on sale. Well worth visiting the website ladies. I bought a didicar which is the coolest thing. It looks a bit like a go cart but has no pedals. The steering wheel moves side to side and it makes the wheels go and it moves!! My little 3 year old with DS goes flying on it. She can only pedal down hill on her trike so this is a revelation for her. I will have no walls left but that is a different story! My 5 year old also likes it, as does my husband! (it will take up to 120kg weight)So just wanted to say I am a satisfied customer and good luck sensational kids
Thanks to all involved in organising the Handwriting course - it was fantastic and I think all who attended went home inspired.
It was fantastic to be able to see and learn so much in one day! Best " inservice" I've ever done, thanks again
I attended the HWT workshop today and found it excellent. I would now like to do the Print Tool workshop
I just wanted to say well done on a really well organised day last Tuesday.The video really brought it home how lacking services are for children in your area and its great to see you as parents being so proactive for your children, though it must be very frustrating at times.
Presentation was excellent, as was shop and material supplied as part of the course.
I really enjoyed all aspects of the course. Thanks very much.
Resources are superb & great value
Presenter had excellent ability to keep whole room interested. Fantastic.
Well done on all your work. Very inspiring.
So interesting – thank you!
Very basic, very helpful. Great energy & volunteering.
Nicest venue and one of the best workshops that I’ve attended in the last few years.
Very affordable. Excellent handouts/material/items on sale
This workshop was really excellent – the video at the beginning was heart breaking – well done to all for creating awareness and helping others.
Really enjoyed, Presentation great. Well done!

Well done. An excellent presentation – a great way to teach handwriting.
Thanks for all the resources that was on display
Very well organised and wonderfully presented day. No doubt due to the depth and breadth of the presenters experience. Well done.
Brilliant tips that can be put into practice immediately.
The presenter spoke clearly and explained all aspects of the course, had a great knowledge of all aspects.
Very enjoyable and practical too.
Lots of information. Good format.

Absolutely fantastic. Great tips for helping children regarding attention and play as well.
The presenter was great. She was so clear & hit the point.
Excellent presentation. Excellent kit.
Fabulous presenter. Really taught us how to do things.
Excellent structure. I am a parent of a preschooler with Down Syndrome. She shows strengths in fine motor skills and an interest in handwriting. I now feel equipped to capitalise on this.
Very enjoyable. Excellent delivery and organisation – it was a pleasure to attend. Thank You.
I loved it all….. Very inspirational and it’s fun and incorporates movement. Excellent way of learning as I too believe if the body is activated the mind won’t focus to learn.
An excellent idea – something that really fills the gap for parents.
I wish I had been at this 5 years ago.
What You Said About The Sensational Kids Star Writers & Kids In Sync Occupational Therapy Groups For Children
I got more feedback than ever before at anything he attended, I was thrilled with that.
G did benefit from the group greatly. It helped us focus on easy simple ways of putting the homework into daily situations.
It works well and we can see a calming effect on him.
He most definately enjoyed the group.
It is close to home (big bonus to us all).
He enjoyed the interaction with the kids in the group.
And it was fun all the way. Can't beat that!
I felt that we were kept informed every week about what was going on, and why. The typed sheets and the beautifully designed star charts supplied were great .
I think that my daughter benefitted enormously from the group, both socially and physically. She really looked forward to attending each week and it was fabulous to see her excited about going somewhere rather than expressing anxiety and fear as is usually the case. I would highly recommend the group to others.
I would definetely recommend the group to my friends and have done so. I would like to thank you for having my son over the last seven weeks. He really enjoyed himself.
Although hesitant at first he really did enjoy the group. I met with his teacher at school and she said all he talks about were his friends there and the games they played. I have copied these handouts for school and where possible they are incorporating it into A's daily routine. They are even using some of the activities for all the class!
Just a quick note to say hello and thanks. G is enjoying the group sessions of OT (Kids in Sync Group) and is doing well. The group session seems to work so much better than the one-to-one.
I am so thrilled to get your email!!! Finally ...O.T. closer to home.
I think its great that your putting together these groups.
I will be recommending the group to anyone I can.
You were a great find to us and I hope to be part of the group sessions again
Thats a great help to us, as parents, to feel we have a "plan" for the next few weeks.
Definately value for money! The ratio was just nice and didn't make it feel like 'work'.
Well done to you all and thank you all so very much. I hope you realise what a difference you are making.
