CASE STUDY: No limits, just possibilities – Magic Carpet in St Joseph’s Specialist School and College
Staff at St Joseph’s Specialist School and College decided to purchase a Magic Carpet in October 2014, with the aim of enhancing the sensory experience for learners that use the school’s Nurture Room.
Since purchasing the device, staff have lived up to the school’s strapline of “no limits, just possibilities” and have proceeded to:
- Take the lead in creating their own personalised apps for the Magic Carpet
- Carry out research on the effectiveness of the Magic Carpet
- Use the Magic Carpet in a number of interesting and innovative ways for relaxation, stimulation, occupational therapy, speech and language development
Karen Bratchell, Nurture Room Leader at St Joseph’s School, said: “While we originally purchased the Magic Carpet for sensory and relaxation purposes, the scope of the Magic Carpet extends far beyond this.”
“We can’t express enough to other people that, if they wanted to purchase an interactive projection system, they should get Sensory Guru’s Magic Carpet.”
