More about Deb Hopper,

As an Occupational Therapist practicing in Forster on the beautiful Mid North Coast of NSW, Deb is truly passionate about helping children overcome sensory and emotional issues and empowering their families to deal with the stresses of their day-to-day lives.

Deb’s professional career has been varied. Deb started working as an Occupational Therapist in Forensic Mental Health and the Melbourne Assessment Prison, to mental health work in Gosford, before working with children in Forster. This may seem a little disjointed, but the mental health skills Deb developed are an excellent basis for working with children with self-regulation, behavioural and learning difficulties.

Deb is passionate about empowering people to understand the impact of sensory processing difficulties such as being over-sensitive to noise, movement, or other senses, or seeking out movement.

As the mother of two energetic boys, one of whom struggles with learning difficulties and sensory processing issues, Deb totally gets the challenges faced by families who find themselves in similar situations. Deb has developed some great processes and strategies that can help you to make sense of your child’s behaviour and understand why things can suddenly go from peace to panic.

Deb’s number one tip for parents is: help them with the growth of their children is to make quality time for your kids, put the screens down, eat together at the table, and talk and play with your kids. Get back to old-fashioned basics.
