About Us


An idea, a dream, a niggling thought, persistent intuition, a brainstorm, a constant conversation, a dare to be brave, a deep breath, a business.


My fourth baby.


Nurtured and loved from idea to fulfilment.


Little Kneaders was created and developed by Amy Winter, an emotional regulation therapist, Infant Sensory Integration Practitioner and Sensory Play specialist for complex needs children and adults. Amy also provides support to neurodivergent children and teenagers with restricted eating, ARFID and eating disorders.

Amy is a certified complementary medicine practitioner and a member of the Complementary Medicine Association.


Amy is also a trained wellness practitioner in autistic touch therapy, mindfulness, yoga for children with additional needs, story massage, mindfulness and breath work.


Little Kneaders was created as a rainbow – a bridge between the gap of awaiting/receiving diagnosis and accessing services in light of all the public health system delays.


“It was my passion and dream to make our services accessible to everyone who needed them, to somehow be able to offer every child and adult an opportunity to access a support service that was understanding, supportive and nurturing of their needs.”


Little Kneaders are an approved CPD provider and our online courses have been developed to help support those working or living with neurodivergent children or adults to create calmer, nurturing and understanding environments through sensory play.


Little Kneaders own sensory products are carefully researched and tested to ensure they are non toxic and safe for your children to use. Each order is lovingly hand kneaded and sustainability remains at the forefront of our products with all packaging being recyclable and reusable.


Our collaborations are cautiously and thoughtfully chosen for their similar ethos and visions.


“And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.” – Harold Arlen
