Marianela Datti (Mane)
Real Connections was created by Marianela Datti, an experienced paediatric occupational therapist.
In 2003, I qualified as an Occupational Therapist with a BSc. (Hons) from the Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina and I am also certified as an advanced practitioner of Ayres Sensory Integration by the University of Southern California (USC) twice (2008 and 2018)
I am trained in Special Yoga and Mindfulness for children with ASD, ADHD, and learning difficulties, and I specialised in Early Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorder and Sensory integration
I am fully registered with CORU and I am a member of AOTI (Association Occupational Therapy In Ireland)
I am passionate about helping improve the quality of life for children with conditions such as autism (ASD), ADHD, DCD/ Dyspraxia, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, sensory processing disorder and learning disabilities and also raising peoples’ awareness and understanding of childhood development and neuroscience.
My ambition here is to hire more therapists and create a multidisciplinary team and start growing the clinic in a way that can offer better support to more families and the community.
