Sensory equipment

Sensory training can develop many different skills and is one of the most important methods of stimulating your child's senses, such as hearing, touch, smell and taste. Using sensory equipment and apps will improve a child with a vision impairment's social, emotional and technological skills and have a positive effect on family relationships, interactions with friends and their school life.

We are here to help you select the most appropriate sensory toys, apps and equipment, such as bubble tubes and dark dens, and because we don't sell this equipment our advice is always independent and unbiased.

Thank you for your interest in Tech for All. The service will reopen in March 2024. If you have any questions, please contact the team email techforall@guidedogs.org.uk. We have lots of other services to help support your child, email us or call 0800 781 1444 for more information.
