Mark Whitehead (Head Designer) and I were privileged recently to attend Autism Plus in the centre of Sheffield for an afternoon. They had approached us for donations for their sensory room and we realised that there was a potential opportunity to host a fun afternoon and take photographs of people using some resources to demonstrate to customers how they can be used – much nicer than static, boring pictures with no people in them!
Autism Plus liked the sound of this so they obtained permission from all attendees and we travelled with a boot full of sensory goodies for everyone to enjoy. The theme of the afternoon was music/sound so we found age appropriate interesting resources that were mostly audible but also took along some olfactory, visual and tactile resources to give a multi sensory experience.
Autism Plus staff and clients were extremely welcoming and a great afternoon was had by all. The group used resources that they didn’t ordinarily have access to, we took a donation of drums with us as a gift which were gratefully received as well as some scented items and we came away with hundreds of photos that could be used by both organisations.
