Jacob’s Story

Danni Hayes, Speech & Language Therapist at Sensational Kids works with Jacob and says, “ Jacob has recently began attending Sensational Kids to help with his communication development.  At the moment, we are targeting Jacob’s engagement and interaction through play as well as introducing PECS as an alternative form of communication.  PECS is a picture-based communication system that will allow Jacob the opportunity to express his needs and wants without relying on the spoken word.

I really enjoy working with children like Jacob here at Sensational Kids. it’s a very rewarding role.”

Jacob’s story is part of a project entitled #SensationalFamiles.  The project was approved by Government with support from the Dormant Accounts Fund, with the aim of shining a light on the impact of social enterprises like Sensational Kids.  A social enterprise is a business that works primarily to improve the lives of people. The business of social enterprise is social good. Sensational Kids exists only to provide subsidised therapy supports to children of all abilities including those with additional needs.
