Being a parent to four children, two of which have additional SEN, has encouraged me to think outside the box when it comes to motivating, stimulating and encouraging development and learning.
Traditional cognitive methods are valuable but when you have a child that is very visually focussed, sensory equipment comes to the fore.
I am extremely excited to be involved with Sense Abilities, not only as a parent but also as an Early Years Practitioner. With a level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People’s workforce, an NVQ2 in Children’s Care Learning and Development and various other qualifications including several Open University courses focusing on children’s brain development and learning through play, I have had the opportunity to witness the benefits of sensory play during my professional experience to the development of young children and the enjoyment, fascination and learning that it brings.
I am passionate about providing all children with the opportunity to learn, grow and flourish within a safe, fun and stimulating environment and believe that not only do our services at Sense Abilities provide such an environment for little ones, but that it can be extended to enrich the opportunities of all ages and abilities.
