i-Spot Sensory Provision

QAC has a sensory provision called i-Spot which is equipped with resources to deliver sensory related therapies as guided by our Occupational Therapist. 

The goal of sensory related therapy is to explore a student’s ability to process sensory information and how this is managed in their different environments.  

The sensory room is well equipped with resources to support and effectively deliver a range of sensory activities. Equipment includes Soundbeam, fibre optic lighting, UV lighting as well as sensory and movement therapy items. 

I-Spot Sensory Room

All new students have a sensory screening assessment completed on entry and a full sensory assessment is carried out if required. The assessment process can help to identify sensory processing difficulties and sensory integration/praxis issues and the appropriate support developed.     

The sensory room is one of the areas used for motor coordination and sensory therapies. Additional support can be provided in and around the general College environment using sensory equipment such as ear defenders, weighted blankets, tactile tool kits and individualised sensory diets tailored to meet a student’s needs. 


What the students say

Being a residential student has really helped me to become more independent I do my own washing and I can cook with a bit of help from staff.
