Sensory arts and crafts boost health and wellbeing
Imogen wanted to become more engaged in activities for longer amounts of time. Through 1:1 support, she has been trying out various sensory sessions and her favourite has become arts and craft based activities.
Imogen likes to feel different materials that she wants to use and help glue them in place to create a sensory board. Previously, she has pushed away from doing activities as she did not want to participate. Now, with encouragement, she has become better engaged in these sensory activities
Her engagement has become very obvious from her facial expressions and vocalisations. Imogen is able to communicate better the things she enjoys and work with colleagues around things she does not like doing, boosting her overall wellbeing.
“She is a lot happier in herself and we can see how much she has grown since starting these sensory activities. Keep up the great work Imogen!” – Mary and Emma, Cranstock Community Hub
