From humble beginnings The Sensational Thinking Project is actively working to improve the lives of children and their families affected by sensory processing differences in the North East by working across sectors and stakeholders to raise awareness and understanding of these differences and help to inform practice.

 The project is being pioneered by the Children's Community Occupational Therapy team & has recently received charitable funding from The Great North Children's Hospital Foundation to give the team the investment that they need to start working towards the multi-faceted aspects of the project and is further supported by NHS England's Clinical Entrepreneur Programme. 

The project has also achieved finalist status for Newcastle upon Tyne Hospital NHS Trust Therapy Innovations Award 2019 and the Research and Innovations Clinical Excellence Award 2019 and hope to be successful for further awards to give the project additional credibility to ensure its success.

 The team are looking forward to phase two of the project in 2020 to establish a hardened evidence base & see further collaborations with service users and the wider community.
