Children under four with physical and learning disabilities are now able to enjoy facilities at the Caterpillar Club in Poole, which has returned following a break during the pandemic.
Part of Diverse Abilities’ Langside School, the club is a fun, free and friendly group that gives parents the chance to meet other parents who have children with complex disabilities, while children and siblings can enjoy a wide range of multi-sensory activities.
Families can attend and meet the school’s multidisciplinary team of nurses, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, and occupational therapists to ask questions or discuss any concerns.
Nicki Priddle, assistant headteacher at Langside School and leader of Caterpillar Club, said: “It’s great for the children to experience the environment, and for parents to find out more about the equipment we use and the various educational techniques we employ to help children to develop their skills and achieve their potential.”
Weekly sessions are tailored and themed alongside the school’s bespoke curriculum including music, art, massage, sensory sessions and stories.
Parent Anya Payne said: “This is the sort of group we’ve been looking for. It’s the most welcoming group we’ve been to and we felt at home straight away.”
