Since coming back to school in September, our class have been enjoying using the new sensory area in the Hillcrest Centre. This area has a fantastic sensory room with interactive lights and bubble tube as well as a new soft play room. Our class use the sensory area during play times, where we can share the facilities with other pupils from the school. This is great for developing our turn taking skills and enables us to have more opportunities for interacting with our peers.
We also use the area with our Occupational Therapist, Christine, and our Speech and Language Therapist, Louise, as part of our Communication and Intensive Interaction curriculum.
We are really enjoying the new sensory area and look forward to using it more as the year progresses.
