Summer Sensory Woodland Explorer Adventures 2023

  • Unique Sensory woodland adventures for children with SEN aged 3-14years & family music sessions for all ages to empower: self-esteem communication & co-regulate Sensory/Emotional self-regulation needs.  Held outside Ballynahinch in Riddell Wood Farm private woodland.

  • During each sensory woodland experience the children will take a journey through all 4 learning areas with lots of interactive & sensory activities in each area. The children will be encouraged to explore and experience all areas in set activities but there will also be time for free choice and free play of preferred activities.

  • For little learners who are just starting to walk or for children who find transitions difficult, there are 4 wheeled trucks to help transport children safely through all the different areas over the 1.5acre site.

  • Each session is facilitated by Judith Riddell, an experienced SEN teacher & her assistants. Judith has a wide variety of qualifications to empower each little learner & is also experienced & trained in using PECs & Makaton communication strategies if needed to empower understanding and transitions throughout the 4 areas for all little learners.

  • For each woodland sensory session, ALL resources are provided within the inclusive price. Free tea/coffee is also provided for adult.

  • For safety, please return all medical and allergy permission forms prior to your session.
