Sensory
Pathway

The Sensory Pathway is aimed at individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities who may also experience communication difficulties.

The activities are used to make meaningful connections to promote engagement and communication of preferences such as TacPac, Sensology, Art, and Sound Beam Technology. You will be supported to take part in an engaging variety of sensory based activities in purposeful surroundings designed to engage all of your senses, promoting enjoyment and engagement with the world around you.

TacPac

TacPac® system uses music and touch to develop communication and interaction. It’s particularly effective for people who need predictable, focused sensations and experiences in order to process information and understand their world.

It’s designed to support the development of communication for people who use non-verbal methods of communication. It provides a structured, emotionally safe framework for the ‘receiving partner’ to experience touch and sound in a cohesive way.

Sensology

Sensology is used for sensory stimulation, which is the purposeful activation of the senses including taste, smell, vision, hearing, touch, movement and balance. Sensology is used to support your awareness, engagement and to enable you to make preferences. Sensology can be an enjoyable way to awaken the sensory systems and can support individuals to focus and increase attention, develop your ability to control movements and to communicate with others.

SENSORY MUSIC and SOUND BEAM TECHNOLOGY

Just as taste, textures and colours aid sensory development, so does music. Exposing you to different types of music can help create more pathways in the brain. This helps to maintain gross and fine motor skills. Music can enhance mood and experiences, stimulates responses and communication through your body language and vocalisations. Sound Beam Technology encourages active communication and engagement and is accessible for all. It allows people we support to experiment with sound through movement and vocalisations.

Other sensory activities include sensory gardening, sensory kitchen, sensory stories, intensive interaction, dance massage and rebound.
