SENSORY therapy is being offered to people with physical and learning disabilities in Leamington.
Sensory Place – operated and launched by charity Heart of England Mencap in 2017 – is usually for the sole use of its members.
But now the service at Fordsfield Centre in Bury Road, is being opened up to the wider community, five days a week from 10am to 3.30pm.
From calming anxiety to aiding decision making skills and helping posture for those physically disabled, the sensory environment is beneficial in a number of ways.
The equipment includes an interactive sound and light floor, fibre optics, bubble tubes and multi-media projection.
Mencap spokesperson Lorna Haynes said: “All of this helps to build confidence and encourage improved communication.
“Our Sensory Place has been designed to remove the obstacles present in day-to-day life which limit access to experiences and enjoyment for people with complex physical and learning disabilities.”
