The Collective Sensory Group (CSG) is a non-profit organisation that was established in 2015. A passion product of two parents who have kids with special needs, the CSG’s primary goal is to facilitate, subsidise, and provide special needs children with the specific therapeutic treatments they might require. As a community-based organisation, it came as no surprise that CSG partnered up with Wexford FC, to spread awareness for children’s mental and physical health.
CSG Therapies, Programs, and Age Groups
The Collective Sensory Group works with children from 0 to 18 years of age, by providing them with therapeutic and recreational programs. The therapeutic programs include Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language exercises, Play Therapy, Feeding Therapy, Therapeutic Listening, Sensory Integration, and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. In the “recreational program”, participants will enjoy summer and seasonal camps, as well as themed days and Parent Support.
The Group’s Founders Are Professionals with Vast Experience
The CSG has vast experience in accommodating the needs of children with the following conditions: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Dyspraxia, Cerebral Palsy, ADHD/ADD, Rett Syndrome, Oppositional Defiant Syndrome, and Sensory Processing Order. Since its establishment, the Collective Sensory Group has been successful in helping many people in the community and also partnering up with numerous other organisations (the Wexford FC being one of them) that are eager to help children with special needs.
The Wexford FC Is Dedicated to Helping Out
In addition to spreading awareness about the CSG, the Wexford FC sent two of their own players along with WFC support staff to participate in a charity “bag pack”, to aid CSG’s cause. The Wexford club are happy to help whenever and however they can, as they too understand the struggles of being an organisation that mainly relies on community funding. The Collective Sensory Group is more than grateful for the WFC’s assistance and will gladly continue to work with them in the future!
