Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Groups

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) groups present one of the most wonderful challenges that we grasp.

Over the past 12 years, Science Boffins have been selected by charities, schools and individuals to entertain their children at Special Educational Needs and Disability groups.

Our presenters display versatility to adapt traditional presentations to the requirements of their audience. We are sensitive to the unique disposition of each child and we work with them and their helpers to extract the very best aspects of the experiments so as to engage the kids as much as possible.


Where concentration is difficult (for example with children who have ADHD) we will work in small modules to provide frequent positive reinforcement. For children with physical needs or impairments we will move at their pace and try to select appropriate activities in which they can participate wholly or partially.
