EVERY CHILD DESERVES THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY
Our Play Specialist can provide play support for your child in your home, school or hospital. All play sessions are focused to meet the individual needs of the child with aims and outcomes. Sessions are always child-led and all play is looked at from a holistic approach to enable positive outcomes. Children process information through their senses and learn through exploration, giving them a better understanding of the world around them. We use sensory play as part of our sessions, which allows the child to use all five senses. This encourages children to explore materials, building up their fine motor skills and coordination. Our Play Specialist is an expert in working with children who are seriously unwell, and can also provide advice on ways of playing that can help your child’s all round development. We also support brothers and sisters who are experiencing difficult times and this can be pre and post bereavement.
“Play is an important part of any child’s life. That includes children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Through these sessions we are allowing children to be children, rather than patients.”
