Alta ASN

What We Do

How do we support Additonal Support Needs and Disabilities?

Alta ASN can help in whichever way best suits your family, the following examples are indicative of what we can do, but as we are always happy to think outside the box please get in touch with any queries or difficulties you may be having and we can consider the solution together.

On site there is a self-contained playroom, where we can support young children with autism, ADHD, Downs Syndrome, etc.. Many activities can be adapted for children with physical disabilities.

A basic developmental or educational assessment can be provided if appropriate, with more advanced screenings available on request. This can be followed up with an in-depth report which can contribute to a multi-disciplinary assessment of the child’s needs.

Funding is being secured all the time for new resources including our Smartboard suitable for play and learning. Among other things, the Smartboard can be used for developing fine and gross motor skills, proprioceptive sensory input, building hand-eye coordination, calming and therapeutic audio-visual, and the physical manipulation of the interactive screen can build confidence and independence, giving children with disabilities a sense of agency.

The playroom also hosts a wide range of physical activity equipment, providing fun and interesting opportunities for development, and a space for adults to get together for an informal coffee session or group training and consultancy.

Off site, Alta ASN has a sister organisation called iCanGym, a gymnastics club specifically for children with additional needs. Funding is currently being sourced to run the group on a regular basis locally, so please register your interest for the future.

Rebound therapy and ASN trampolining can also be arranged off site to suit individuals and organisations with access to a trampoline.

Other ways to make use of the specialist knowledge on hand such as tutoring or supporting the wider family is always available, so even if you just need a chat to gather your thoughts, please drop us a line to see what we can do for you.

If we cannot help directly we are confident that we can put you in touch with someone who can, so contact us today.

Any questions? Please get in touch and let us know.
