Sensory Update
Back to article list

24th November 2016

In our school, we love to be able to use a wide range of strategies to help all our students to develop throughout their school career. As you can imagine, our resources are well used. We often replace smaller items gradually, but this term we are in the process of updating the equipment in our sensory room. This is a shared area where we work with students, either individually or in small groups, to develop their sensory skills. For example, some students may need support to practice their visual skills and this may be achieved through a game of follow the leader, turning off the lights using a torch or ultra violet light to light up objects on a path around the room.   At Melland, we aim to continue to provide high quality and relevant sensory support for all our students.
