Christmas Competition: Design Your Own Festive Effect Wheel

We might have been stuck inside for the best part of this year, but that hasn't stopped us from being creative!

From painting radiant rainbows on our windows and drives to thank the NHS, to developing our senses through our Sensory At Home adventures. We have managed to make 202o a year of creative sensory discovery... and we've still got one more month to go!

To put your creative skills to the test, we're launching a very special Christmas Competition.

We're challenging you to design your very own festive effect wheel, and our favourite design will be turned into a real effect wheel!

Creating A Sensory Integration Room

With Sensory Integration becoming a popular topic of conversation, we thought that we’d create a handy blog post to talk you through everything you need to know about Sensory Integration; what it is, what it means, and the process of designing/creating a Sensory Integration room – working through our recent case study at More Rehab!


The Importance of Social Skills

Why are social skills important?

Social skills are the foundation of our lifelong journey for personal development.

They help us build friendships, share our thoughts and ideas and evolve our sense of self, all whilst we grow our personal confidence. Laying down the foundations for a happy, enriching and supported life.

Although many people struggle with their social skills, especially ‘neurodivergent’ people with special educational needs, disabilities, or autism. This is because social structures are typically centred around neurotypical people, and feature lots of unspoken rules and practices that can take a while to learn, understand and adapt to.


World Rhino Day

What is World Rhino Day?

The 22nd of September is World Rhino Day. A day dedicated to celebrating Rhinos all across the world. And a day centred around bringing much needed attention to the conservation efforts set up to save the species from extinction in the wild.

(3 out of 5 Rhino species are currently critically endangered - so it's an important time for us to act!)


The Wonderful World Of Fidgets

Why you might have heard of fidgets

Fidgeting is a physical effect of our brain’s natural reaction to the world around us.

We might feel our feet unconsciously drumming along to the beat of our favourite song, a rush of unwelcome anxiety when navigating a new place, or spiking nerves when we are under pressure to meet a tight deadline.

Fidgety moments are a feature of our daily lives. They can happen at different times and can affect us in lots of different ways. Some can be seen as positive (jumping up and down with excitement), whilst others are perceived more negatively (ants in your pants wriggling about on your seat).

Finding ways to productively channel our fidgeting has become a subject of exploration for many ingenious minds. Rooted in sensory, it’s a topic of discussion that has even recently broken into mainstream focus (see the 2017 fidget spinner frenzy!). Which is why we thought that it’d be a good idea to dig into the wonderful world of fidgets, and why they’re an ingenious force for good.
