There is a 'Try Before You Buy' system for equipment & resources, so this could save you spending money to then find out what you have bought your child or young person doesn't like it. This works by leaving a deposit which you will get back on the return of item, and a hire charge which will go to buying more resources. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like more information on this scheme.

Below we have a selection of weighted items that can help your child . For a small deposit you can borrow these items to try before you buy.

Bose Quietcomfort 15 vs 3

We have been lucky enough to be able to purchase a pair of these BOSE Quiet Comfort 15 Noise Cancelling Headphones. These come highly recommended for children and adults on the spectrum with sensory issues around hearing, they cancel out all the background noise whilst letting the wearer hear what is being said in the foreground. These retail at around £250.00 so we thought we would buy a pair for you to try before you buy. There will be a refundable deposit to borrow these.
