Sensory rooms

Quite a few of Lincolnshire’s children’s centres have a sensory room.Sensory03           These can provide a
valuable aid for children on the spectrum to recover from the trials of life.          They can aid
relaxation, promote well-being and help in developing new skills.

  • For more information, see: SEN article.           Multi-sensory environments provide opportunities for personal development and can play a vital role in the curriculum, says Suzanne Little.

See  Grantham children’s centres   or  Lincolnshire children’s centres to find the nearest one to you.
