Sensory Gardens and Playgrounds for SEND Settings
In a child, a SEND (Special Education Need or Disability) can be one of various needs, including autistic spectrum disorders, physical disabilities, visual and hearing impairments and learning difficulties. At Timotay Playscapes, our team are experienced in delivering play areas, sensory gardens and sesnory playgrounds that allow children with a wide range of SEND requirements to enjoy the outdoors.
This means offering equipment taking account of SENDs. Our experienced and award-winning team at Timotay Playscapes have seen how inclusive playground and sensory garden designs enable children of many different abilities to play and learn together in an environment fostering the shared and widely-understood medium of play.
Start To Finish Project Management
Whether you seek to offer playground facilities in an educational or commercial setting, our team can handle the start-to-finish process of both designing and manufacturing those amenities for you. Along the way, we can account for specific issues you may be aware of.
We can, for example, create quiet retreat areas for children whose senses are easily over-stimulated, and we can build visual reminder stations to help children follow multi-step instructions. Meanwhile, specially optimised trail equipment can provide more of the order and structure that SEND children crave.
For children with SENDs, outdoor play is vital for helping them to develop their health while allowing them to learn in a positive and socially inclusive environment. We offer specialised SEND playground equipment, such as ramps catering to specific access requirements and sensory tactile panels that can help SEND children to improve their concentration and hand-eye coordination.
