Cracking sensory play space for Wishaw

ORCHARD Primary Language and Communication Support Centre in Wishaw does great work with local youngsters who have Autism. That is why, when Wooden Spoon Scotland were approached, they were delighted to donate £20,000 to help transform the playground/outdoor space there into a sensory play space which will greatly benefit all who attend and their parents and carers.

Recently an area of tarmac and an area of grass was completely transformed, thanks in part, to the Wooden Spoon Scotland funding and now the youngsters are growing in confidence and learning every day there.

The area is also great for parents and carers to touch base with the teachers, while the positive benefits to the children from the revamped space will impact the wider community as the children develop integration strategies to allow them to be more effective contributors to society.

To top things off the Wooden Spoon Scotland donation also went towards a superb pirate ship which the kids just love playing on – shiver me timbers!

Wooden Spoon Scotland cannot wait to visit again soon to see how the new sensory play space is going from strength-to-strength.
