We serve children ages 2-18 with special needs and their families with customized, sensory-based programs to maximize developmental potential leading to independence and inclusion. Founded in October of 2007, It’s a Sensory World! was created by a parent, Rekha Suryanarayana, and a teacher, Angela Stephens. Together their vision was to create a space where children with special needs would not only be accepted but celebrated. It’s a Sensory World! began as the first recreational sensory gym in the state and the second in the nation. Over time, It’s a Sensory World! has grown to include unique, sensory-based educational and recreational programming filling the service delivery gaps in the region. It’s a Sensory World! serves hundreds of children with special needs and their families from 49 zip codes throughout North Texas and is well-known in the community for providing heartfelt, high-quality services. It’s a Sensory World! Academy was developed to serve children ages 2 to 18 with developmental delays and disabilities, specifically those who have not yet found success in traditional educational settings. At ISW Academy, we take a whole-child, “bottom-up” approach to development and learning. We aim to give each child the tools necessary to find success in a group environment, both socially and academically. To achieve this, we will develop a customized, sensory-based plan that targets your child’s specific developmental needs. With our highly intensive, individualized approach, children begin to improve self-regulation, emotional regulation, communication, and attention. Students have also demonstrated an increase in awareness, independence, and academic performance and have displayed an improvement in social behavior. Our goal is to create a balanced developmental profile to prepare children for their next steps. Our program offers a small student to teacher ratio of 3:1 or 4:1 depending on age and developmental level. If you are struggling to find the right fit for your unique learner, schedule your tour at It’s a Sensory World! today!
