I have 14 year old triplets who run the gamut of special needs – all of them are diagnosed on the autistic spectrum as well as having numerous health and learning disabilities. We have been attending Playsense for the last 4 years, not only as a family, but through their school and camp programs as well.
The Playsense facilities are wonderful for any children with special needs – there is something there that will appeal to any child. From gross motor play to sensory equipment to needing a quiet place to sit, Playsense affords any child a fun and worthwhile experience. Staff at Playsense are uniformly welcoming, warm, accepting, and adaptive to the needs of any child that walks through their door.
Playsense is not only a welcome activity as a family in our week and during school breaks, but a very welcome affirmation that our children have worth and are important as individuals. The activities and equipment are designed to bring out the best in each child, and also provide a fun experience. As a parent, it’s also a comfort to know that the staff are prepared to deal with any situation (fell free to email me about our 13th birthday party!!)
My children are always wonderfully individualistic, but I never have to worry when they display non-typical behaviours or mannerisms. Playsense is a safe and welcome haven for my entire family, and I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you to all of Guelph’s Rotary clubs (and anyone else that needs to be thanked) as well as the staff at Playsense.
