Sensory therapy

When children have neurological conditions, it’s absolutely essential that we find alternative ways for them to interact and communicate.

That’s what our sensory suites are all about.

Unique to us, these state of the art rooms give pupils the opportunity to express themselves through touch or art, music or movement, or simply provide a space where children can be calm – away from the usual distractions of school life.

The sensory suites play a central role in every day life at St Piers School.

We find they help to reduce fidgeting, improve concentration and put pupils in a better frame of mind to learn, or carry out a task. They also allow the children to express themselves in ways that may not have been available to them before.

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My grandson has a severe epileptic condition. He has Lennox Gaustaut syndrome and difficult to control seizures. He can have many seizures throughout day and night. He was attending a special needs school but when he became the age of 16-17 years they could not meet his medical needs or physical needs. It was discussed that he would benefit from going to Young Epilepsy. How lucky he is to go there. It is an absolute school of excellence. He does and goes places that I never thought he would do. The heads, the teachers and all professional people are there to give and help with advice, care, and the vast experience of epilepsy. He cooks, swims, canoeing, archery and lots more. He is very happy and so am I. I do not worry about him as I have every confidence in everyone at the Young Epilepsy.
