Sen Talk By Sen Talk

Creating opportunities and community activities for familys with children of SEND

Wandsworth Delivery stage

pledged of £3,431

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The Send-sational project will create leisure activities and creative arts opportunities for families with children on the Autistic Spectrum, Attention Deficit Disorders and other related SEND within the Borough of Wandsworth. We aim to help bridge the gap beween higher functioning disabilities and sports and leisure opportunities. Sen Talk will focus on delivering sporting activities, family fun days and events to raise awareness of less- visible disabilities, but also promote opportuninties for children to engage in specific focussed enrichment which are not always available in mainstream settings.

What we'll deliver:

  • Arts equipment
  • Marketing Materials
  • Venue Hire

Why it's a great idea:

Wandsworth Borough has a high proportion of young people, specifically aged 5-12 on the Autistic Spectrum compared to other London boroughs, who attend mainstream education. These higher functioning children often need additional support within these settings, which is not always possible, which means they often miss opportunities in leisure and creative adtivities due to mainstream barriers. Sen Talk aims to bridge the gap in this provisiona, but also support parents and carers by raising the profile of these particular conditions, creating a general sense of awareness within the community.

Steps to get it done:

  • To have 3 family fun days
  • To have 50 families registered on the programmes
  • To have atleast 20 children engaged in sports
  • To offer an art project for children with SEND
  • To run an ongoing art project

Higher Fuctioning Disabilites can be extremely challeging for individuals, often the expectations of social understanding is pressumed because of higher cogntive ability- when inreality these children lack confidence, social skills and engagment . Children with higher functioning Autism and ADHD are at higher risks of mental health conditions which is largely due to difficulties with anxiety.
