We would like to raise $20, 000 for a innovating, fun and exciting idea. A bus which would be fitted to provide sensory play experiences for children with disability or developmental delay.
The mobile bus would visit various accessible parks (or local beaches etc) each day so that children can have their therapy appointment with Plumtree followed by a play in the park/beach, which gets them out into their community. The mobile bus will provide a unique way to deliver services that will enhance rapport building. It will also promote partnership with councils and councils related initiatives (such as the Magic yellow Bus)
Staff would assist families with planning these outings, try new sensory activities with them and help them to learn how they can find ways to incorporate these ideas in everyday routines.
The Plumtree Sensory Bus could also carry some promotional material about Plumtree and Now and Next in order to link families with other education and networking opportunities.
