1:1 Support for Children & Young People with Disabilities or Additional Needs

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. Sessions are supported by our highly experienced staff (Intergated Practitioner in Social Work and Leaning Disability Nursing), supported by University Student Nurses and volunteer team.

Our aim is to improve the mental health and emotional well-being of children and young people with disabilities and additional needs 0-19 (our clients) by helping them overcome difficulties they face and supporting them in achieving their potential through coping strategies, thus reducing the need for medication and medical interventions.
