Sensory bag 

Sensory devices are aimed at children with such things as autism, attention deficit disorder or sensory processing problems. However, the child doesn't need to have any disorder if you want to borrow a sensory bag. You can borrow a sensory bag from the doorman. The bag contains objects that support concentration and following the presentation. The bags have e.g. hearing protection, Tangle fidget toys, weighted toy, and communication pictures. There are two (2) bags in total. The bag can be borrowed free of charge for the duration of the performance.

  • Annantalo is committed to promoting accessibility in all of its hobby activities.
  • We take all kinds of children into account in our art activities.
  • Families and guardians can feel safe and secure in discussing any support needs their children might have with us.
  • Our aim is for every child to experience success in our activities.
