|About||Sensational Kids provides pediatric occupational therapy services to children in the New Orleans area.|
Sensational Kids works with children with sensory processing disorders, feeding issues, handwriting difficulty, and developmental delays. We work with children from birth through adolescence. An occupational therapy evaluation can assist in determining your child's therapy needs and goals in order to help them achieve their maximum potential.
