Pilbara-based developmental educator and play therapist supporting kids across Australia
Hi, I’m Carol Hegan
I’m an Inclusion Advocate and Disability Educator and founder of The Inclusive Movement.
I’m also a proud mum to two children with disability, and I live in Karratha.
The Sensory Play Shop exists because I want to help parents and carers of children with sensory processing disorders, autism and other exceptionalities to understand what’s happening with their children and feel confident about completing therapy at home - in a natural, playful and empowering way.
When my kids were little, we spent hours accessing therapy services and other disability professionals every week.
But, what I learned was the progress didn't happen in the one-hour therapy session, with someone my children barely knew - the real change was happening in our safe space at home, with us, during everyday moments, through the magic of play.
My interest in this area took me on a journey of further study to complete a Bachelor of Disability & Developmental Education and clinical play therapy training.
I’m so glad I did because I discovered the power of PLAY as a learning tool. Once I matched the playful activities that supported my kids’ sensory preferences, life at home changed instantly. They were more willing to engage in fun learning activities while maintaining a regulated state.
Our daily life improved immensely, and play provided profound moments of joy amongst the challenges.
And I want you to feel confident continuing therapy at home as well. Because achieving each learning milestone is a treasure to cherish.
