Facts & Figures

One in four children in Ireland has a special educational need.

The Problem

One in four children in Ireland has a special educational need. A lack of affordable support services for children who are experiencing developmental delays, or those that have special educational needs, means that too many children in Ireland are struggling to reach their full potential. The figures themselves are startling;

  • There are over 70,000 children waiting for an appointment for speech & language and occupational therapy appointments..

Our Impact

Sensational Kids has directly supported over 9,000 children from all over Ireland  through our child development centres in Leinster, Munster, Ulster & Connacht. Thanks to the fantastic work of the entire team, these children are now being given the opportunity to excel.

With our online store, fundraising and training workshops helping to subsidise our services, Sensational Kids has already saved families in Ireland over €2 million  in therapy fees alone, providing a practical, accessible, and affordable service for those in need.

Each year 500+ professionals benefit from upskilling through our range of professional development training workshops which are delivered nationally.
