Sensory Toys is a free home sensory equipment service for children with additional needs. These specialist toys and equipment are extremely expensive and often unaffordable for most families, making it hard to meet the needs of their children. Not only this, but many play centres and other facilities are frequently unequipped to accommodate children with additional needs, resulting in them being excluded; unable to take part and missing out on vital development play and socialising.
These are just a few of the reasons behind why Zak has decided to give back, helping to support as many people as possible by providing top of the range equipment inside a home environment, for up to seven days.
Here is a list of just some of the children that may benefit from the free commercial sensory toy service provided: Autism; ADHD; Anxiety; Asperger’s Syndrome; Cerebral Palsy; Down Syndrome; Emotional & Behavioural Disorder; Epilepsy; Sensory Processing Disorder; Learning disabilities; Traumatic Brain Injury; Visual impairment and more!
It is also important to note that sensory equipment can also benefit those with dementia, helping to improve their; motor performance, ability with everyday tasks, cognitive tasks, remembering, problem-solving and judging what to do in everyday activities. Not only this but it also helps with stress, comfort, mood and much more.
Also available on the website will be the option to purchase personal/non-commercial sensory toys. All of which are perfect for individual play and have been carefully selected as firm favourites with children within the sensory toy industry. Funds generated from sales will help reinvestment and the ability to offer new innovative products within the sensory equipment industry.
