Who are we?

At SENtre, we provide bespoke support for children with additional needs. We work with your child in a play therapy style to enhance their language, cognition, academics, social skills, and play skills. We have a fantastic hub in Birmingham with large rooms, a soft play area, and outdoor space, all packed with ways to stimulate your child.

Services are available for children aged 2-11yrs old and can help those who need additional support in communication, independence, social skills, speech and language, and challenging behaviours. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
