Assisting children and teens to develop sensory and cognitive strategies, helping them to more fully participate in school, work and leisure activities.

Preventing the misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis of gifted and twice exceptional children through education, identification of Overexctitabilities (OEs), and advocacy.

Philosophy

With the right tools, environment and understanding, children and teens can meet their potential.

What do we do?

  1. Provide sensory and functional cognitive assessments* and comprehensive reports, including strategies and environmental adaptations. These will give individuals an understanding of their skill sets, identifying their strengths and challenges that may impact on independence, and enable us to develop a plan tailored to their needs.
  2. Advocate and consult with families, schools and clinical services, including attending meetings as required.
  3. Professional development packages for schools, support & clinical services.
* Functional cognitive assessments are not diagnostic in nature.
