Our Story

Our vision is to help the world become more sensory informed. 

"We love what we do. We're passionate about delving deeply into understanding our sensory world and its role in human development and behaviour. By becoming more sensory informed, we believe our practice can continually improve.” 

We’re Lindsay and Emily, paediatric and neonatal occupational therapists engaged in clinical work and, through our courses, to educate others in the fascinating world of sensory processing and infant development. 

Our mission is to empower and encourage those working within neonatal, perinatal and early intervention to provide the best possible sensory-informed care for babies, their families and the staff supporting them.

We’ve delivered our course worldwide, in Europe, North & South America, Australasia, Asia and Africa. Over 1000 occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, health visitors, teachers, nurses, doctors, psychotherapists, psychologists and wellbeing practitioners have completed it. 

We’re endorsed by the Neonatal Nurses Association (NNA) and are American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) approved providers.

Hello, I'm Emily Hills

I have 20 years of experience as a Clinical Specialist Occupational Therapist working in both NHS and private settings. I met Lindsay when she trained and mentored me at the start of my sensory journey.

I graduated from Brunel University in 2001 with a BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy and from Southampton University in 2018 with an MSc in Neonatal Studies.

I currently work in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in London. I lead developmental care, neurobehavioral and neurodevelopmental assessments in the NICU, and developmental interventions, including follow-up after discharge. I’m passionate about family-centred care and creating the optimal sensory environment for preterm babies and their families.

I’m a certified neonatal therapist (CNT). I have completed the Newborn Individualised Developmental Care Assessment Program (NIDCAP), Advanced Prechtl General Movement Assessment, Neonatal Behavioural Assessment Scale (NBAS) and Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO) certification. I’m a senior lecturer for the Brazelton Centre in Great Britain. I am also a lecturer for the SENSE program and The Family and Infant Neurodevelopmental Education (FINE). I am an Advanced Practitioner in Sensory Integration (SI), Neonatal Touch and Massage Certified (NTMC) and am a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI).

Hello, I'm Lindsay Hardy

I have worked as a paediatric occupational therapist for many years for the NHS and charities in the United Kingdom and abroad.

I have led teams of occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech and language therapists and designed content and taught post-graduate courses for therapists and others in the field of paediatric occupational therapy, sensory integration, cerebral palsy, early intervention and developmental neurology.

I am a expert practitioner in Sensory Integration, have completed several advanced trainings including Bobath Course in Early Intervention, Prechtl’s Assessment of General movement, and advanced training in Conductive Education and have completed
Circle of Security Parenting training and level 1 VIG training.  I am particularly interested in the role of parenting and supporting parents in early childhood.
