Our ‘Sensory Adapted’ sessions are modified in various ways, to make them more suitable for certain families with SEN.
At Discover, our events and performances are all ‘relaxed’ so that all families can enjoy them – we don’t expect our young audiences to be completely still or quiet! Our ‘Sensory Adapted’ sessions are modified in various ways, to make them more suitable for certain families with SEN. Some of the differences are:
- We will explicitly indicate that our audience is welcome to move around, make noise and leave or re-enter the session throughout.
- We’ve kept capacity lower, and are holding these sessions at times when Discover is generally quieter throughout the building.
- Lights and sound levels will be adapted to make these sessions less overwhelming – we’ll also have a specific chillout area outside for those who need a break.
- Ear defenders will be offered to those who need them (NB these are always available on request at our reception).
If you or your child like to see a new space before visiting it: you can download Social Stories for the exhibition here or watch a video version here (filmed during a standard session without adaptations).
A space-themed, immersive exhibition created with Dapo Adeola and Tọlá Okogwu.
The Box Rocket will see visitors travel on an intergalactic adventure in a homemade rocketship, arriving on a peculiar planet where they must complete an important mission.
The exhibition is created by Discover with illustrations in the immersive space created by Dapo, and the story devised by Tọlá and delivered by Discover’s Story Builders.
For children aged 0-8 and their families – this session is particularly suitable for children with SEN.
