Summer Schemes!

All Of Me Sensory is beginning to gear up to Summer 2017 with a range of new services and activities on offer, it is very exciting!

I am absolutely delighted to be working with Knockevin Special School to offer stay and play sensory workshops during their Summer Scheme.

These will be themed and planned to meet the specific needs of the children involved. Many of the children have multiple, severe and profound learning difficulties, with varying sensorial needs and challenges.  The activities will be varied with a range of wet messy and dry sensory materials, including lights, sound and soft area.

There will be several small sessions offered throughout the day, to meet these individual needs and ensure that all the children can access the sessions to the best of their ability.

As with all Stay and Play Workshops the children will be supervised by carers at all times.

I can offer 3 types of session, at a cost of £70 each or £180 discounted for any combination of 3 on 1 day.

  1. Sensory Sessions

  3. Staff Training

Structure

  • An hour-long session, with approximately 15-30 minutes to reset resources. children can come and go within the hour according to their own needs and interests.

  • 6-15 students per session – at the discretion of staff as per children’s ability to cope in size of group.

  • children  are to be supported and supervised by staff at all times to participate in the activities according to their own abilities and stage of development.

  • Activities will be mainly situated in the floor, with some table top set up to facilitate access to all.

  • I would recommend a large space that has washable floors, with access to water such as the hall if possible.
