About The Sensory Studio
Let me introduce myself, I'm Erin.
I am Erin, a wife to a wonderful husband and a Mum to two beautiful daughters, aged 11 and 8 when The Sensory Studio was created.
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. Regular and numerous Psychology, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy appointments filled our calendars. However, I struggled to find sensory aids locally to assist my daughter in my home town of Wollongong, NSW.
Hence 'The Sensory Studio' in Fairy Meadow was born.
