Sensory Spectacle SPD Workshops

Sensory Spectacle creates immersive experiences to educate about and form a better awareness of Sensory Processing Difficulties (SPD). Our workshops and installations give you an opportunity of experiencing first-hand how a SPD might impact your life, allowing for greater awareness and understanding of auditory, visual, tactile, olfactory, gustatory, proprioceptive and vestibular difficulties.

Our installations and workshops can be used simultaneously, or separately and are tailored to fit your bespoke needs. We are flexible in our approach which allows us to provide for everyone, from creating awareness at events and conferences, providing informative and interactive workshops as well as building bespoke installations for you & your organisation to learn first hand from. We will work with you to create a tailor-made experience that offers a unique learning experience, like our sensory classroom.

Sensory Spectacle’s installations naturally encourage you to reflect on your experience and to better formulate ways to support people living with SPD.

Becky (our founder) can also come and speak at events about what sensory processing disorder is, the work we do or anything specific to the conference / event relating to SPD. We work worldwide, we have trained staff in Mumbai, Uganda, Dubai & Amsterdam.

Our individual installations are:
Being Ben – which gives an opportunity to experience how a hyper auditory processing difficulty may sound like.
Lola’s World – gives you the opportunity to see yourself and your surroundings in a fragmented experience relating to a hyper visual processing difficulty.
Mehdiosmia – highlights the impact smell has, it is based on a boy who wouldn’t wear his clothes when they were freshly washed as the smell of the washing detergent was too overpowering.
Cristina- gives you an opportunity to experience how rocking can be a calming and stimulating movement.

Our bespoke learning experiences are:
Sensory dining room – which educates about the sensory difficulties relating to mealtimes, this includes food as well as the environment.
Sensory Classroom gives you an opportunity to be in a classroom situation, being given work from a teacher while also being exposed to an auditory, visual and smell processing difficulty.

Sensory Spectacle has proudly worked with Misophonia International to help reduce stigma for sensory disorders.
