During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Our 13th year of themed summer adventures will continue to keep our campers engaged and entertained! We have two components to our summer camps: Education and Recreation. The educational portion of our day will follow our popular S.M.A.R.T. Model (Sensory, Motor, Academic, Recreation, Technology). This is an opportunity for our campers to maintain, practice, or gain new educational skills. The recreational portion of our camp will include games, sensory stations, art, music, stories, discovery, special events, and community outings. All activities will be designed to specifically cater to the interests and needs of our enrolled campers. Our camp hours are 9 am-4 pm Monday through Friday for the summer of 2020 and run through the months of June and July. You may sign up for as many sessions as you choose. With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unsure of our ability to go on community outings and field trips but we are moving forward in hopes that we are able to. In certain cases, these volunteer opportunities and internships have lead to paid positions. We will require pre-service training via zoom or on-site and you must attend our volunteer meeting, once scheduled. What we are looking for is energetic, flexible, and nurturing team members who are interested and passionate about working with children with special needs of all abilities. This is a great opportunity to learn and grow!

At It's a Sensory World! our mission is to provide quality, but cost effective educational, recreational and therapeutic programs for children with special needs and their families. We envision a sense of community where children of all abilities and their families network in a caring, nurturing and enriching environment. We want all children to have the unique experience It's a Sensory World! provides, without financial worry.
Who Are We?
It’s a Sensory World! is a center that offers a variety of multi-sensory educational, recreational, and therapeutic services for children with special needs and their families. Our unique programs bridge the gap between therapy and mainstream education and recreation.
Why Are We Different?
When we first opened in October 2007, we were the only center offering services supplemental to therapy in North Texas and one of only two in the country. We are the only center where parent empowerment is a central part of our mission.
We are the only center in North Texas that offers these unique bridge programs all in one center.
We have a large therapeutic gym which is typically only found in a therapy setting. Our gym is unique because it is open to the public, and we use it to provide the students enrolled in our many programs with the intense sensory input they need.
We have a unique, child-centered approach which blends multiple disciplines, including speech and language, sensory integration, behavior modification and special education.
