This group is a welcoming and supportive group where children are free to play, explore, and engage in different activities if they wish to. Parents feel well supported, and walking into Yes You Can often feels like ‘home’ to many of the families, as both parents and children are free to be themselves.
Stepping Stones is an Opportunity Group for children with special needs in the West Wiltshire area. “Special Needs” being the term we use for identifying children who will benefit from specific therapy and support to help meet their potential. Children from birth to five, with varying levels of need, attend the group. Stepping Stones operates as the District Specialist Centre for West Wiltshire.
Parents are welcome to contact us directly, but most children have been referred to Stepping Stones by a Paediatrician, Health Visitor or other professional.
Children come here to have a fuller assessment of their needs and to be helped and encouraged to learn and develop through play.
