What some of our customers think:
in the fantastic and under-recognised Sensory World in Dewsbury,..."
From a letter by dental postgrad student A Mohan published in the British Dental Journal
One of our service users has dietary requirements that are always met and there are always choices for their food. The service provided here is great. Always chat and talk with us staff and service users and interact with them on the level which they go above and beyond to make the experience very enjoyable for them.
I do recommend Sensory World to families with children and learning disabilities. There is a great atmosphere in Sensory World.
Linda is amazing, the lady running Sensory World, helping loads of special people for their needs in so many ways.
Gary has visited Sensory World regularly over the past few weeks.
He came in for his usual lunch of gammon egg and chips while the dentist training was on and he asked for a consultation.
One of the dentists checked him and gave him some advice on keeping his mouth and teeth healthy.
The first day he came to Sensory World he had never been to a place like it before. He stayed for around 10 minutes and seemed to really enjoy the lights.
He slowly progressed to staying an hour, in some cases not wanting to leave. There was nowhere else we could find where he would settle and had the facilities that he enjoyed. The first couple of weeks he only walked around but after a month or so, he started to interact with bubbles and pressing lights on and off. He started to laugh and play ball with staff.
After about four months he went in the ball pool for the first time. This was a real achievement for him and showed just how much he had progressed in a couple of months. He becomes really excited every Friday morning due to him knowing where he goes every Friday at 12:30.
This is a massive part of his weekly routine.
This lady is so calm when coming to Sensory World and interacting with different objects. Lovely to see.
This gentleman loves to watch the lights and listen to the calming music while sitting in his wheelchair.
This lady normally struggles with concentration - but at Sensory World is calm and will sit for periods of time.

The children all seem to like the ball pool with the rainbow lights in. I particularly find as well that the Makaton nursery rhymes are amazing for the children who are not yet verbally fluent.
A great experience all around and the staff and volunteers are all amazing.

They especially love the climbing tower and ballpool. We have had food from the menu which has been enjoyable. Childminders have come from Huddersfield to enjoy time with their children in Sensory World.
