Meet our Outreach Team
Multi-Sensory Outreach offers a multi-sensory approach to learning and play. The outreach team work with early years practitioners to include children with significant and complex needs in all areas of development. They adopt a multi-sensory approach to access learning experiences and opportunities.
The Multi-Sensory Outreach service is open to children in mainstream Foundation Phase classes (Nursery/Reception stage). In addition, we support children in Flying Start Playgroup settings. Referrals are made through the Early Years Forum.
The outreach was invaluable and gave us as teachers a lot of confidence to work with our pupil. We have also used some of her ideas with other children and this has also had a very positive impact on their school experience. I can't praise this service enough it was fantastic.
We have had an excellent support programme from the outreach worker this year. It has been invaluable in terms of making simple changes to our curriculum and adapting things to our pupils’ ever changing needs. For example the introduction of TACPAC, sensory stories and story massage have been practical things we have implemented quickly. It has been the most useful of professional services this year. We were allowed to visit Ty Gwyn to further support our professional development and build an understanding of what was needed and how suggestions can be implemented.
Being able to observe different strategies to support child being modelled. 1:1 TAs being able to observe good practice and new ideas. 1:1 TAs being able to discuss concerns and ideas with highly trained professionals.
The outreach worker offered practical advice that was implementable. She gave many great ideas regarding resources, was highly committed and professional. A pleasure to work with.
The outreach worker was able to provide us with support and strategies to try and manage the pupil’s behaviours within a mainstream nursery and was helpful in providing the next steps for the pupil and how to review his IEP.
