Children with Additional Needs or SEND – Children Centre Support and Sessions

If you have a child with additional needs or Special Education Needs and/or Disability (SEND), you are welcome to come across to any of our sessions at the Childrens Centre. However, we understand that this can seem daunting at times for our families, therefore we have specialist sessions on for Children with Additional Needs.

Pre-Portage Sessions

These sessions are designed for our families who are awaiting intervention from our Portage team. A member of the Portage team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have and support sensory play for your child.

Sensory Play

Come along to our sensory sessions! A darkened calming environment bursting with lights and sensory opportunities to help stimulate your child’s sensory development. Did you know – you can also book out our sensory room for your own personal use! Just contact your local Children’s Centre to find out how.


Come and join our Rainbow sessions for children aged 0 – 5 years, with social or communication difficulties, or autism. Siblings between 0 – 5 are also welcome to attend. These sessions are supported by Autism Together.

There are also specialist courses and sessions you could access for your child with SEND of Additional Needs. By referral, we offer:

  • Infant Massage
  • Makaton Classes
  • Rhythm and Movement Sessions

To access these opportunities, contact the SEND team on [email protected] or 0151 666 3980 or complete the form below and submit to the email address on the form.
