Aim Sensory Library

DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS, THE TEAM WILL NOT BE MEETING PEOPLE FACE-TO-FACE BUT ADVICE IS STILL AVAILABLE USING THE CONTACT DETAILS BELOW.

THE SENSORY LIBRARY HAS MOVED TO THE RIVERSIDE CENTRE (FROM AUGUST 2019)

It has lots of items that can help people who have an Autistic Spectrum disorder. We will talk to you about what might be helpful. We can also give information about other services. Some equipment that people think about buying is very expensive. We want people to be able to try it first. When you have tried it you can decide if it was helpful or not. We do not sell any products. We can give information about where to buy them. The volunteers and staff are not trained OT's or physiotherapists. They cannot give medical advice.

These are the things that you can look at and borrow.

Books
Books can be borrowed for up to 3 weeks.
