Fountaindale School’s Story

Fountaindale is a Special Needs school catering for children with a wide range of conditions including: physical disabilities, complex medical needs, sensory impairment and learning difficulties. Some physical and tactile-defensive impairments can make it impossible to hold things such as musical toys or instruments, denying children an opportunity to enjoy sensory stimulation.

The School wanted a particular piece of sensory equipment called a Soundbeam System and thanks to support from Crest Nicholson Regeneration, Variety was able to provide it. The equipment can be used by a wide range of children because it converts simple movements into sound. Even a small movement such as the blinking of an eye can create a cascade of notes, chords or sound effects.
