Allison Morgan MA, OTR, E-RYT, is the founder and CEO of Zensational Kids. She is a pediatric occupational therapist, author, international public speaker, and educational trainer driven to empower youth and the adults that care and serve them. She is passionate about training educators, parents, mental health professionals, and allied health professionals, giving them effective techniques to develop skills such as self-awareness, management skills, compassion, and resilience so they can model and authentically teach these skills to children.
Allison began integrating yoga and mindfulness into her therapy sessions with children in 2007. Discovering the multitude of physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral benefits these practices offered her occupational therapy clients and recognizing the need for more mental health and social-emotional learning programs in schools, Allison began writing curriculum and developing teacher training programs to help others share these practices.
She is the author of curriculums for pre-K through high school-age students:
Allison is also the author of Wisdom Within, a children’s exploration of inner awareness.
She has partnered with universities to conduct research investigating the effectiveness of yoga and mindfulness with special-needs populations and contributes to several advisory boards and organizations involved in creating better lives for children.
As a sought-after international speaker, she brings knowledge, wit, and joy to inspire her audience as they tap into their own inner resilience, empowering them to share it with those they serve.
