Location

Situation

Most mainstream schools` SEN Rooms are not equipped to cope with moderate learning disabilities when compounded by anxiety & social communication blockages. We work with children who cannot afford therapy and are not getting aduaqete support from schools due to severe statutory cuts. Users are recipients of means tested benefits and 40% are reliant on food charities to meet core needs. In the UK, there is approximately one learning disabled child in every twenty, yet families report isolation.

Solution

In response to user & stakeholders consultation, regarding improvement of services we want to expand our OT services to a state of art therapy Centre offering a range of therapies, including Sensory Integration (SI) therapy, OT, Speech and Language Therapy, Neurofeedback,CBT and professional tutoring where needed. This will enable us to give place to 41 children on waiting list and be open to other children in community. Users will build strong social connected community reducing lonliness

  • Initially,I sent Liba to Blossoms Therapy club just to get her out of the house.She was always bullying her siblings and clumsily breaking almost everything she passed . Liba thrived on the sensory integration diet and exercises prescribed at Blossoms, she became a calm and content kid.

  • I could not understand what`s so bad about me.Do I have a horrible breath?Am I contaminated?Why,the closer I came to kids the more they jumped from me.Lucy gave me a trick to imagine an arm lengths between me and the kid.She said to look in eye but not glare.We role played-and now I have friends!

  • Blooming Blossoms treats every child like a seed with infinite potential. Every child gets a tailored treatment plan which is followed to perfection. And all treatment is accompanied by smiles and true love. I wish that more of my students could join.
