Variety Golf is pleased to be providing Sensory Kits to 500 families with disabled and disadvantaged children to help them cope better whilst having to look after their children at home during enforced home isolation. The provision of this tangible equipment is not being provided by other charities at present.

Sensory toys help children to relax, focus and calm down to a particular scenario or event. They help them grasp things with decreased fear and discomfort and enable them to play more easily. They also help them develop social learning skills like planning, negotiating, and sharing – all of which are more crucial at the present time.

The kits include items such as: Glow Gloves, Space Blanket, Colour Acrylic Mirrors, Spotty Spinner Ball, Impact Lightning Ball, Sparkly Play Foam, Ear Defenders, Weighted Cuddly Animals and Sensory stress balls.

The packs will be accompanied by information offering parents practical ideas for how to turn everyday household items into sensory objects, as well as a guide signposting to other websites and ideas-based resources for supporting children with SEN while schooling at home.

Packs will be delivered within the week.
