Welcome to the Grandview Kids Main Site Sensory tour!
The benefit of a sensory tour is to prepare you and your child or youth for not only what a visit a Grandview Kids will look like but also feel and sound like (e.g., the loud WHOOSH sound our sliding doors make at the front entrance). Watch the video below as Natasha and Alden navigate Grandview Kids’ Main Site in Oshawa, highlighting the sights and sounds you will encounter when you visit!

Welcome to the Grandview Kids Main Site Sensory Tour!
We first start from the client parking, where Natasha and her son Alden head over to the main entrance of the Grandview Kids site.
When Alden walks through the door, it makes a loud sound, but that’s okay. Alden knows he’s safe when he visits Grandview Kids.
They make their way to the front desk to sign in. Put on new masks provided for everyone and sanitize their hands.
Now, Natasha and Alden head on to the waiting room where they wait for Alden’s therapist.
There’s lots of different rooms that Alden can visit. Sometimes Alden’s mom, Natasha (the adult) will have meetings in the conference room, when the client does their therapy.
For Occupational Therapy, Alden can use the gym or do activities at a desk.
Sometimes, Alden comes here for Physiotherapy. When he does Physio, he can do stretches and exercises.
When Alden comes in for Speech and Language, he plays games and does other fun activities.
Audiology is also down the hallway; Alden comes here when he needs to get his hearing tested.
Sometimes, the audiologist will touch Alden’s ears, but that’s okay! He can practice this at home before he comes in to visit.
Campbell Children’s School is a special school program. Alden’s mom (the adult) can ask his therapist for more information.
When Alden comes in for ABA Therapy, he has lots of fun! Sometimes, he gets to jump and play in Green 5.
On some visits, he also might get to visit the playground. He visits the playground with his therapist, but sometimes families get to visit, and Alden gets to play with friends.
Alden’s therapist helps so much! He has lots of fun visiting Grandview Kids!
