Tammy Maguire

Tammy brings a wealth of experience to Sense Abilities.

Tammy says “I am so excited to become a director of Sense Abilities as I truly believe that sensory is so beneficial to all, especially those with SEND.
My journey in SEN started 16 years ago where I worked as a classroom assistant in a special school in Kent.
From here I became a support worker in homes for adults with learning disabilities and challenging behaviours.
My journey was interrupted at this point by the arrival of my beautiful son, who 5 years later was diagnosed as being on the Autistic spectrum and having sensory processing disorder.
This led to me becoming involved with the Torbay Parent Carer Forum where I have been the Administrator for over two years now.
In the last few years I have turned my skills to fundraising, last year raising over £7,000.
I look forward to fundraising this year to increase the availability of Sensory play in Torbay and beyond.”
