(UK) Mansfield: School adds "immersive space" for students "with autism and neurodiversity"

Nov 24, 2022, Chad: New 'cubbies' installed at Mansfield school to support pupils An immersive space designed to support students’ wellbeing, in particular those with autism and neurodiversity, has been installed at a Mansfield school.

Central England

The Cubbie, at The Samworth Church Academy, was designed by husband-and-wife team, David and Diane McIntyre, who wanted to support autistic children within education through personalised sensory regulation, developing an immersive space with sound and vision tailored to suit each student.

Jack Durose, a Year 9 student at the Sherwood Hall Road school, has already been using the Cubbie.

He said: “I use the Cubbie when I feel upset about something. It helps by giving me time to think by myself and to calm down.
