The Omnibus Project is continuing to develop a range of services which support parents, carers and their extended families engage children and young people, through the use of a variety of different creative and enjoyable sessions, to develop their communication, social, interaction, attention and engagement skills.
We encourage people from all backgrounds and abilities to get involved and can tailor make sessions to the needs of each group - just give us a call to discuss what you would like us to offer. We are also able to deliver Sensory Santa during November and December and please talk to us about specialist children's parties
Sessions include sensory sessions, messy play, signing (Makaton), interactive story-telling, training and arts and crafts to name but a few although we can design specific groups or sessions around your needs so get in touch to find out what we can offer.
Classes are also available for adults to learn how to be creative with their children, create your own games and visual resources for use at home, learn Makaton sign language or develop a new creative skill themselves with our 'grown-up' sessions.
We are also working on setting up parent support groups, training for parents and siblings within families where an inidividual has additional needs and a club for siblings who may need some time away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved with these sessions and support groups.
Our first steps involve offering a lending library of our sensory stories, sessions to help you deliver these stories across a variety of settings, lesson plans and teaching materials to support these stories, as well as training and support in the use of different communication approaches including Makaton Sign Language, visual resources, creating your own sensory stories, Language through Colour (originally devised by Gap House School), as well as different symbol software packages to create your own resources or communicate more effectively. We can also help you find and make useful links to other sources of support and information.
We also have a wide range of resources which Teachers can hire or you can ask us to design a resource, sensory story or activity for you as we all know that teaching and preparation time is precious!
Please feel free to contact us to see if we can help you address any issues or difficulties which you might be experiencing and we will try to guide you in the right direction
