Bits and (Master)pieces
At Cranstock, the team have been busy looking at different ways they can support people with more complex and profound disabilities to develop their skills and gain independence.
The team decided to run some sensory sessions to help the people they support build on skills such as decision making when picking different objects, expressing and communicating what they do and do not like, working in a group to boost social skills such as taking turns, and developing and maintaining their fine motor skills.
The team focused on each person’s individual strengths and weaknesses to help them work towards their own goals, and everyone enjoyed participating in the group.
Community Support Worker, Karen Robinson, shared:
“If at the end of the session they feel they have achieved something, whether it was holding a paint brush, sprinkling some glitter, or smiling at sensory touch, then they should feel very proud of themselves because I know I am.”
