Established in New York in 2004 to provide sensory-based learning and therapy to the pediatric population of New York's Upper West Side neighborhood.
Sensation strives to empower children and their families to succeed in their educational, family and community environments. We utilize proven therapeutic interventions to give kids the physical, sensory, social, cognitive, and emotional skills they need to learn and grow.
Sensation, Pediatric Enrichment Center and Occupational Therapy Sensory Gym, was founded in 2004 by Licensed Occupational Therapist Chaya Gottesman. In 2007 Chaya turned a two-bedroom apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side into a compact, yet fully loaded sensory learning environment.
We have proudly grown from one therapist providing individual therapy in our gym to several therapists providing OT services both in our gym and in local schools. Be sure to keep an eye on our handwriting club. Their teachers and even YOU will be able to read what they are writing.
REACHING FOR THE STARS
Chaya's role as Certified SMHP Therapist and instructor brings her to training therapists and teachers to implement the strategies proven to elicit functional and legible printing. Bring her to your school! It's actually fun to create "star-worthy" handwriting.
