The Parenting

Happy & Healthy


The parenting dojo that guarantees to unlock your pOTential.

The simple truth is – Parenting is hard work.

It’s not all happy families as Instagram or Facebook would have you believe. It can be overwhelming to navigate the complexities of caring for a child, especially if they have additional needs. OTFC Group have created this program because every single day we see caregivers who access our service wanting to know more about parenting.

Our children do not arrive with an instruction manual. And even if they did, every child is different. Where most people only see broken bits, as Occupational Therapists, we see a mixture of constantly changing bits. All different, all beautiful. And when you get some help putting all the pieces together, you will see just how much better the parenting journey can be.

At the OTFC Group, we focus our attention on learning and understanding everything about your child. In the Parenting pOTential, the focus is on YOU, and giving you the knowledge to understand how your child operates.

Let us help you take your parenting from surviving to thriving.

What am I doing wrong? Why is my child behaving like this? Why is this so hard? I am not coping.

This program is for anyone who cares for a child and wants to help them be happy, independent, inspired & resilient young people.

Dino Mennillo

Dino Mennillo is a keynote speaker and expert Occupational Therapist with over 20 years’ experience working with children and adolescents.

Dino’s OT journey began while pursuing a soccer career. Over his 10 years in professional football, he was fortunate to represent his country in the Australian National League and internationally. A chance encounter in 2004 introduced him to the theory of Sensory Integration and ultimately served as catalyst for change. Together with his wife, Michelle, he acquired OTFC Group with a desire to make a positive, lasting impact, and an ambition to reach every child and young person in Australia. Learning, developing, enhancing and challenging the way OT’s work with children has been his goal in providing a service that truly makes a difference to the lives of others.

Dino is certified and specialises in Ayres Sensory Integration® and it’s this approach that makes OTFC Group unique. In partnership with Sensory Integration pioneers and experts in the USA (CLASI), Dino has been able to train therapists in Australia and contribute to the development of a new Gold Standard Sensory Integration Assessment (The EASI) – one that will continue to reflect evidence-based intervention at the OTFC Group and in OT for years to come.
