What do people say about us?

"The Sensory Drama has been great as it differentiates for the wide range of needs of the students at Blueberry Academy. It is also great that our students are able to have a meaningful creative and community experience, generalising skills beyond our provision."
Kirsty K
Blueberry Academy
"My two Autistic students who recently started to attend your sessions have settled well and they also are looking forward to your wonderful stories and poetry sessions. One of the two young men suffers from transition anxiety but he leaves class every week without any problem, which tells me that he is looking forward to his fun filled mornings."

Minster Provision
"We're really enjoying the Friday Drummers sessions! Alysha has pitched it perfectly for A. He indicated just how much he will allow me to help him join in. He shows his enjoyment in sounds and movement."
