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.
Our services are growing with the times and adjusting to our new virtual reality. We continue to provide dynamic and proven interventions remotely. Utilizing the motor development Timmoco gaming platform and the evidence supported Size Matters Handwriting Program we are uniquely qualified to provide tele-sessions that successfully improve skills in an engaging way that builds physical and cognitive ability and ultimately improved overall confidence and participation in learning and social activities of daily living.
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.
