SENtre Therapies

We provide autism behavioural therapy to children with additional needs to help them learn new skills that they can use in their everyday life. These sessions take place at our Birmingham hub or in your home. We can help them speak, get dressed, try new foods, do their schoolwork, use the toilet, and more. These are all things that sometimes struggle with and need a little extra help with.

    My son has been going to the SENTRE for 3 months now and I can honestly say I’ve seen an improvement in his interaction and learning new skills. Charnel and her team of tutors are very caring and passionate about their work and this is reflected in the progress he has made.

    It was a pleasure for my son and I to visit the facility. I like the idea of having different zones with a range of activities. My son is very sensory but doesn’t like getting messy but that was no problem, he still had a wealth of resources he could use. It’s clear that a…

Frequently Asked Questions

What does SENtre do, exactly?

We provide autism behavioural therapy to children with additional needs to help them learn new skills that they can use in their everyday life. We can help them speak, get dressed, try new foods, do their schoolwork, use the toilet and more. These are all things that sometimes struggle with and need a little extra help with.

Our wide-ranging services include a range of behavioural therapies and fun activities, all built around nurturing, helping and understanding your children, while also allowing the parents of SEN children a break too. And we’re flexible, offering our service both here at our custom-built and well-equipped centre and through our online hub and in your own home too.

How much does it cost?

SENtre offers a variety of services at different price points. We try to make our services affordable because it’s our mission to give support to the people who need it the most. We also accept childcare vouchers. To find out exact costs, please see the specific service page, or contact us.

What kind of needs can you support?

SENtre can support children with more or fewer needs. Some of our children are non-speaking, and some need support with personal skills. Some have Autism, some have ADHD. Some have global developmental delays, and some have Down’s Syndrome. We can help your child if they have PDA or other social, communication, and behavioural challenges. Our therapy sessions are helpful for children with more needs, and our play sessions are open to everyone.

How does SENtre communicate with parents?

We think it’s important to have open lines of communication about your child. We’ll contact you by email, phone, and also via phone notes if your child attends SENtre. We host parent workshops which are like practical parents’ evenings, so you can learn new skills and support your relationship with your child.
