Making Sense

Making Sense Header

Our Making Sense project provides a range of services aimed specifically at children with Profound & Multiple Learning Disabilities and their parents/carers.

We offer monthly meetings to provide support, advice and training for parents as well as sensory play sessions and access to our sensory room for children/young adults. Sessions will aim to promote communication, social interaction, and sensory & emotional development for the children/young person in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Profound & Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD)

Children and young adults with PMLD have more than one disability, including a profound learning disability, communication difficulties and very often physical & sensory disabilities and complex health needs. The combination of these additional needs will result in the child/young person requiring a high level of support with most aspects of daily life.

For children/young adults we offer:

  • Sensory play sessions
  • Access to our sensory room
  • Hydrotherapy
  • A range of accessible activities
  • Access to a range of specialist toys and equipment through our Lending Library

For parents/carers we offer:

  • Advice and support
  • Specialist training on a variety of subjects
  • Opportunities to meet other parents/carers
