What is The SPACE Centre all about?
The Space Centre is the largest and most versatile multi-sensory environment in the UK for anyone with special needs. It provides a place where children and adults with physical, learning and emotional difficulties can develop skills and enjoy experiences not usually available to them.
Within one of our 3 sensory rooms, individuals can be transported to a whole series of virtual worlds and the ambience adjusted to suit the needs of the individuals or parties so that they are comfortable and relaxed. It is in this way they are more likely to try different things and enjoy different experiences.
The flexible environment for families, carers, therapists and teachers:
Allows freedom for clients to move in safety
Provides a world of sensory stimulation and enables the assessment of sensory abilities by presenting one stimulus at one time and excluding unnecessary distractions.
Builds confidence and motivation
Gives wheelchair users the chance to be out of their wheelchairs and experience different positions
Enables life skills to be developed through structured and educational programmes
SPACE is available to anyone with support needs. It is used regularly by those with development delay, cerebral palsy, dyspraxia, autism, challenging behaviours, emotional difficulties and profound multiple difficulties, including brain injuries.
