Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
What We Do
We use a wide range of targeted developmental techniques during the course of doing arts and crafts projects, in order to work on the skills needed for reading, writing and other life skills. These include (but are not limited to):
- Bilateral co-ordination
- Visual motor tracking
- Crossing the midline
- Pincer grasp
- Planning and sequencing
How Do We Do It?
Our studio is not the traditional ‘bright and busy’ studio environment.
Our Wall of Fame, which features previous art projects, is screened off from the main workroom.
Our location is quiet and peaceful and our visitors tell us they can’t help but relax.
Just around the corner from the studio is the Millpond, with a lovely play area right next to it. There are swings, a slide and a climbing frame, along with a woodland walk. This could provide the sensory input appropriate to the individual, prior to visiting the studio.

- How we make our service inclusive
Every client is unique and we therefore tailor our approach to suit. We have found that engagement is increased when the client has an interest in the subject, so that is what we do. If they like unicorns, we do unicorns. If they like volcanoes, we do volcanoes.
We use equipment such as a Safe Space, weighted blanket, gym ball, therabands etc, which means that we can use the senses to help our clients to concentrate and focus and therefore make progress.
We have wheelchair access and a disabled toilet for those with impaired mobility.
