Workshop Description

Designed to support children and young people with profound learning needs and/or who communicate non-verbally, they harness a system of binary questions and handleable resources in using a range of senses to explore in concrete ways quantity, dimensions, capacity and texture. We’ve now developed a format for students with lesser needs, using the same basic methodologies to illustrate the value of precise mathematical language. And whichever way you choose, our unique and portable Sensory Box allows us to work with up to seven students at a time! workshop typically last for 30 minutes and you can mix and match sensory maths workshops with any of other workshops listed above.
