What exactly is The Social Factor?
What exactly do you do?
We deliver a range of programmes including but is not exclusive to training in the areas of character and special needs education, leadership, mentoring, peer support, relationship building, parenting, cyber wellness, social-emotional learning, motivation and team building. We also believe in the importance of national and citizenship education, and provide training options in humanities-related topics such as history and social studies.
We are inclusion advocates, and we assist companies and schools in the design and construction of sensory rooms to help persons with special needs obtain the sensory input needed to achieve their fullest potential in learning and in play. We have assisted a number of educational institutions, children’s homes, family service centres and private companies to set up sensory spaces where people can relieve stress and obtain the much-need sensory input that would help them through their day.
I understand that you also operate an online store?
Our store, Sensational Play, was started after we had conducted a training workshop for a group of teachers on how to help children with special needs in the classroom. Many questions were asked on where the teachers could purchase products for children with special needs. We promised to help source for them, but quickly realised that there was a limited range in Singapore, and that most of these specialised resources were very expensive. We resolved to help bridge this gap, and bring in the resources that are needed to help this special group of children develop to the fullest of their potential.
