Suzanne is a highly experienced teacher of children with severe disabilities in the United Kingdom. She is also a good friend of Jean’s and has an interest in Aquinoe – the school and the charity.
She has developed a system of ‘Colour Tents’ to help children with severe disability, who may have shown little of no awareness of their environment previously.

It may seem complicated but, actually, the idea is simple. Enclose the child in a brightly coloured ‘tent’ and outside distractions – visual and auditory – are cut out and the child can focus on one thing.
If possible, Jean would like to take this system to Aquinoe to be of benefit to some of the children with disabilities.
