Gemma is a trained specialists in Sensory Interaction at Richmond Hill.
They are currently working with children in individual sessions to help with their communication and interaction skills.
These sessions are ‘child-led’ and aim to develop a positive relationship with the child in a relaxed, homely environment. They have a variety of sensory toys and items that are available to encourage sensory stimulation and physical/verbal interaction, including hand creams and music (individually chosen to suit the child).
The room is set up, and adapted, to make the child feel comfortable, safe, relaxed and confident to explore.
At Richmond Hill, we have found that these sessions have proved to be an essential part of the development, learning, and interaction for some of our children with many positive outcomes.
