How The Sensory Studio came to be...
I am Erin, a wife and a Mum to two beautiful daughters, aged 12 & 9. My youngest daughter was born with a Bilateral Cleft Lip, Cleft Palate, Hearing loss and a Cardiac defect. By the time she was 6 she was also diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. As a mum, I did everything I could to assist raising my daughter with her additional needs so that she could lead a "normal" life. However, I struggled to find sensory aids locally to assist my daughter in my home town of Wollongong... Hence 'The Sensory Studio' in Fairy Meadow was born.
