Sense’s Early Intervention and Play Team are launching two new weekly sessions as part of our Connect and Play service!

Connect and Play: Discover our Service sessions.

These sessions are designed for families new to our Connect and Play service and are chance for them to meet our team, find out more about the range of support we offer and ask any questions they may have, as well as experience a taste of our activities, before joining one of our six-week programmes or virtual sessions. Our Discover sessions take place each Wednesday, 10-11.30am in our bespoke children’s room at TouchBase Pears in Selly Oak.

Our second session, launching next week, is our Virtual Story Hunt! These sessions take place via zoom so families can join from the comfort of their own home.  Our Story Hunt sessions are a great way for families to connect and enhance children’s communication skills. Each week we’ll guide families through a new sensory story and encourage them to find special household items around their house to engage their senses and help to bring the story to life! These sessions take place each Monday, 11-11.30am

Both of these sessions are available to book via our website, here
