Aim Sensory Library


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 can be borrowed for up to 3 weeks.
