Today, 1 in 4 children in Ireland has a special educational need. Identifying and treating these difficulties at a young age will allow a child to truly realise their potential.
Sensational Kids is an award winning non-profit , that has changed the lives of over 6,000 children, saving their families over €1.5 million in therapy fees. We provide vital frontline therapeutic supports for children with additional needs, ensuring that these children in need have access to vital supports when and where they need them.
With 45,000 children on waiting lists for speech therapy & occupational therapy our services are a lifeline for families whose children would otherwise be waiting 3-4 years to access services and would lose the opportunity for timely intervention and better outcomes for their children.
Sensational Kids operates four nationwide child development centres in Kildare, Mayo, Monaghan, & West Cork providing subsidised, timely intervention services, such as occupational therapy, speech & language therapy, and play therapy.
Fundraising and earned income from our child development & learning store and training events help subsidise our therapy services, so that we can bridge the gap between public and private therapy services, providing a practical, accessible, and affordable service for those in need.
