Each child is unique and they learn things in many different ways. This applies to children with additional needs as well. According to the Global Partnership with Education, there are anywhere between 93 million and 150 million children estimated to live with disabilities and around 40% of children with disabilities are out of school at the primary level, and 55% at the lower secondary level, due to the lack of the right resources and learning materials available to them.
Taking this into account and also from their personal experiences, Alison and Raana decided to start the Sensory Souk. Sensory Souk was born out of a desire to create a network or a community for parents who are on a similar journey. Their aim is to provide products that will not only support your child’s therapy programme but also help them to learn and play.
The materials they provide enable all children to learn, play and help them in school and at home. They offer a range of products that addresses the challenges faced by kids. Located in Royal Plaza, they have a variety of games, early intervention tools, sensory fidgets, educational support material and more to help the kids in various aspects of their learning journey. The selection of products available at Sensory Souk also comes with Raana and Alison’s understanding as parents of special needs children. They have taken their own experiences into account and worked with other parents, therapists, and children to identify product lines to address specific sensory needs and the ones that provide the best sensory support. They are constantly working with schools, Special Needs centers and their parent network to ensure their product range is as comprehensive as possible, helping parents support their kids with homeschooling and home learning too!
Not only that, Sensory Souk has always aimed to pay it forward with their work in educating people, opening up conversations, and help build mindfulness within the community members. They have also held regular events for educators, parents, and the general public before the current restrictions came into place. Sensory Souk has been honoured to have worked with PHCC, MOPH, and NMOQ on many projects.
As part of Autism Awareness Month, you can join Alison, Raana and their distinguished guests on a Facebook Live, where they will share their ideas and expertise on how one can take steps towards Autism inclusion. This will be a great conversation starter on the challenges faced and to raise awareness about Autism. Will you be joining this FREE webinar?
