A WILLIAM Martin primary school parent is raising funds for a sensory room at the Tawneys Road school.
Alex Sanders told YH: “I am raising money for William Martin school to get them a sensory room for their children with disabilities and special educational needs. This includes my son, who is struggling in mainstream school.
“When this is achieved it will allow the school to adapt the environment to children like him rather than the children struggling to adapt to the school environment.
“Within a school, children are usually expected to watch and listen to the teacher, a sensory room allows children who need additional support, the freedom and choice to explore the environment for themselves, in their own time, using all of their senses.
“A sensory room will help children calm and focus themselves in a safe environment, so they can be better prepared for learning and interacting with others.
To raise the money needed I am going be organising events, working closely with the school and parents as well as asking for donations towards this project. I cannot stress enough how much of a difference this room will make in meeting the needs of these children.
