What do other organisations have to say?
"Jade’s workshops are truly amazing! She makes the sessions special by getting to know each of our young people and tailoring to their individual needs. The sessions are fun, creative, and interactive, including all the senses for a full immersive experience. Whenever our young people participate in a Spectrum Arts activity, you can see how happy and excited they are, and you can tell that they are leaving feeling so uplifted. Jade's enthusiasm and positive attitude is infectious, and her workshops are the highlight of anyone’s week."

“It was a fantastic day, we can't thank you enough, they loved it! An exciting, engaging and motivating day. Our pupils were able to practice so many of their communication, personal development and creativity skills while having fun. Jade and her team are professional, organised and most of all care about the young people they work with. A great inclusive opportunity, with something for everyone!”

“Jade… was also flexible and able to work spontaneously. The sessions were very much based on student's energy and motivation. The sessions were fun and creative. The best thing about the session for the pupils was the enjoyment and participation levels. Overall, amazing sessions. We had adults come to inclusion to share the positive feedback and time they had with Jade. Genuine passion and energy shared and felt in the room with the children.”
Autism Provision Teacher
Ravenscroft Primary School
“Jade has been an absolute asset to Fulbrook and the SEND Team. For the past 18 months, she has been working with vulnerable pupils, creating a safe and fun environment where they can express their emotions and develop their communication skills. Jade's sessions are bespoke to us - she is always willing to adapt her sessions to suit the cohort in front of her.
When a concern or issue arises whether that is something that has happened in school or at home, Jade has been able to use her sessions as a way of supporting pupils via social stories through drama. The pupils really enjoy working with Jade; she is understanding, motivating and her enthusiasm is infectious.”
Fulbrook Middle School
“The children love the sessions and can't wait for each one to come. One of the Year 4 boys stopped going and has been begging me to let him go again!
It has been wonderful to see children who are vulnerable flourish within the sessions. To hear the sound of a non-verbal child's voice will always be one of my most amazing memories.
It is so beneficial for children to have an outlet for emotions and energies which is not academic or static and which encourages self-expression and freedom. I really value the flexibility of your session, the fact that you can target any number of themes or challenges within the workshop.”
