Joanna is an international sensory engagement and inclusion specialist, trainer, author and Founder of The Sensory Projects.

The Sensory Projects share the knowledge and creativity needed for inexpensive sensory items to be used as effective tools for inclusion. Chlöe Salfield is a student at Curnow school. She is a huge fan of music, particularly rock and punk.
