To be eligible for SEN-den’s services, you need to live in Enfield and have an autistic child or children under the age of 8 (this includes children who are part-way through the complex NHS process of being assessed by a range of professionals to confirm their diagnosis of autism).
EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES STATEMENT
The reason we have had to set an upper limit of 8 years old, is because we are a very small, independent organisation with limited capacity and resources. By being very clear about our mission and the needs of our specific target group, we can use the limited resources we have to deliver a very carefully, thought-through range of activities for younger children and support services for parents and carers at the earlier stages of their autism journey, rather than attempting to spread ourselves too thin, offering a less “niche” service and hence, very likely, delivering less impact for families.
Please bear in mind that autism comprises an extremely broad spectrum. Every autistic child is a unique individual with different abilities, sensory needs and preferences. Consequently, each child and family is likely to have different hopes or expectations of the “ideal” sensory environment for their child to take part in a group session. However as a very small organisation with capacity and space constraints, we can only offer a small number of group sessions each week.
We welcome all autistic children under the age of 8 in Enfield, but also recognise that our play sessions and sensory environment may not be suitable, or enjoyable, for every child and family, for the reasons above. Where this is the case, and where possible, we will aim to offer you a bespoke, individual family play session, or refer you to another local provider of activities.
