Structured Sensory-based Support
Twinkle House is an ‘outcome focussed’ service providing sensory-based structured support in a non-threatening, safe, calming environment that is adaptable and acceptable for those with a wide variety of difficulties and impairments.
Support is enhanced using practiced techniques in our Multi-sensory environment with access to hi-tech specialist equipment and resources.
