We understand that parties for SEN children can be a strange, daunting, challenging and stressful experience. Whether this is due to sensory processing and / or communication difficulties, our dedicated team have created SEN sensitive parties to reduce this stressful time for all.
We are passionate about producing inclusive opportunities for children and promoting a positive experience of parties, not just for this one event, but for children to enjoy attending and hosting parties going forward.
Pre Party Consultation
During your pre party consultation you will meet with our SEN Specialist and also a Party Planner. The SEN specialist Carla has 15 years experience working with individuals with special educational needs, she is trained in sensory processing, communication, Makaton, play therapy, behaviour support, zones of regulation, social and emotional strategies and much more. Carla is the founder of Integrated Therapy Life and is dedicated to providing a bespoke inclusive, positive experience of the party.
At the consultation Carla will discuss a range of areas from communication needs, sensory processing, strategies, triggers, visual supports, specialised equipment and more, ensuring the appropriate resources and support systems are in place so that your child and their guests can access and enjoy the party. She will also discuss the pre party support plan and how best to prepare your child for their special day.
At the consultation our Party planner Rachel will assist you in planning the actual party. She will listen to your requirements, discuss party ideas plus make professional recommendations for the entertainment, decorations and any other party services you might require. These recommendations will be designed to fit with the children and their needs. Carla and Rachel will then work together to tailor the various elements of the party taking into consideration all of the above.
