Community Resource Centre


The aim of Community Resource Centre is to provide a toy and equipment lending service for children and persons with special needs. Children with special needs need a wide variety of toys and equipment to provide stimulation and to help them overcome their physical, mental, emotional or perceptual difficulties. The Community Resource Centre carries a stock of educational equipment to help a child improve and develop fine and gross motor skills, coordination, reading, writing, number skill, visual and auditory discrimination skills. The Community Resource Centre also provides creative and sense stimulation material to encourage a child's imagination, social confidence and speech. Family games and fun activities are also important to develop social skills. A Physiotherapist is employed to give professional advice on selection of toys and use. There are also a small number of aids to daily living and a small reference library on specific and general disabilities.
