SensationALL was founded with an all-inclusive ethos:
- all ages
- all conditions
- all members of the family
Crucially, we DO NOT require a confirmed or formal diagnosis in order to access our services as we believe in offering early and timely intervention for those who need it.
Many of our service users have neuro-developmental conditions, meaning there is a disability in the functioning of the brain, commonly resulting in physical and sensory impairments, learning difficulties or medical needs. The majority have more than one identified condition therefore we use the term ‘multiple support needs’ (MSN).
Around half of our attendees have Autism or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Many have learning deficits, developmental delay or neuro-developmental conditions such as cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome and Dyslexia.
Each of these conditions can lead to difficulties with:
- information processing
- communicating effectively
- memory and comprehension
- behaviour and self-regulation
- sensory perceptions/experiences
all of which have a significant impact on their ability to learn and socialise.
SensationALL was founded to address the lack of easily accessible, practical advice, support and treatment. Our timetable of activities are based on clinical principles in order to develop an individual’s learning, development, communication, social interaction, behaviour and coping techniques.
We believe that ALL individuals and families should have equal access to appropriate leisure activities and opportunities to develop learning, friendships and promote positive mental health as part of lifelong learning and growth.
We aim to empower all members of the family with the confidence and skills required to address the life long challenges that complex conditions present.
