Children's Therapy

S.M.I.L.E (Sensation Movement Interaction in Life Experiences) provides a multi-sensory environment for calming relaxation and sensory stimulation. It is for the benefit of children with a variety of difficulties including those with profound and multiple disabilities and their siblings.

Multi-Sensory Room

Based at the ARCOS Therapy Centre in Malvern, is a sensory room with a ‘difference’; not only does it offer state of the art technology. It also provides play activities such as cooking, creative storytelling and messy play.

Creative Story Telling

One of the most important gifts a child can receive is a love of stories and reading. 

As part of our therapy for children, we encourage making books fun and bring stories to life.

Messy Play

Messy play offers many opportunities for learning.

There is no right or wrong way to do messy play; children of all abilities can use materials in their own way and still be part of the group.

Music, Dance and Drama

For young children, in particular, music can be extremely valuable in enhancing personal, social, and educational development.

It is important therefore for parents to encourage their child’s budding interest in music.

“The silence of speechlessness is never golden. We all need to communicate and connect with each other – not just in one way, but also in as many ways as possible. It is a basic human need, a basic human right. And much more than this, it’s a basic human power.’ 

Williams, 2000

Arsha's Story

Oliver's Story

Life before the children’s therapy that ARCOS has provided was very hard for Oliver and me. He struggled with so many things, hated change with a passion, and hardly ever wanted attention or cuddles…
