Special and Additional needs: Everyone has a right to PARTY!

Here at Playhouse, we believe in everyone’s right to party.
This is why we have devised a specific range of entertainment for children with special and additional needs. Our shows use a range of props to engage the children in multiple ways. Using colour, sound and sensory experiences the show appeals to children/young people with a range of additional needs.

Our approach is interactive and tactile and all our shows can be signed, using Makaton, throughout for any children who are pre-verbal. We use a range of props to engage children of all abilities. Our entertainers are trained to an extremely high standard and are very experienced at performing for children with additional needs – guaranteeing that the children have the best time.

At Playhouse we understand that every child’s needs are different and we will work alongside you to ensure we avoid triggers and give the children the best party. We have a great understanding of performing for children with a range of additional needs and we would love to speak to you about what we can offer your children. Whether you are a parent/ carer looking for Birthday party entertainment or a school/ charity – we can deliver an entertainment package to suit your children.

We would love to discuss your party further and answer any questions you may have – you can contact us here

Daniel did a great job for my daughter’s 10th Birthday party.

All the children at the party had PMLD needs. He knew exactly what to do to get the attention of each child individually and as a group. The pace of the party was just right. Not too long, not too short.

Daniel spent a lot of time asking questions about the birthday girl in advance. This became very apparent at the party with all my daughters favourite tunes and the way he engaged with my daughter and her friends.

I have had lots of feedback from the other adults present at the party. They loved him and thought he did a fab job.

My daughter who uses symbols gave me a definite “yes “ when I asked her if she enjoyed it!

I will definitely book him again for another party and recommend him to all my friends.
