Sensory Table We have an increasing number of small sensory items which will be on tables for use during the meeting – please try not to be too distracting with them during talks! On occasions there may be a bigger selection on a separate sensory table for use before or after the meeting (but not during) so you can explore and try out items which may help to manage sensory sensitivities or which have been recommended for a sensory diet.
