Queenslanders – Miami Hub is open! If you live in and around the Gold Coast, you now have even more choice of disability supports with Afford opening a disability support hub in Miami!
There are loads of engaging programs and activities organised for people with disabilities to enjoy at Miami Hub. All programs are designed based on the interests of participants, and if we don’t already have an activity in place that suits your style – we’ll create it!
One of the newest attractions for the Miami Hub is the state-of-the-art sensory wall. It offers a complete sensory experience. Images projected on the wall react to your touch and movement. You can touch underwater sea creatures, floating across the wall, and see them move, pop and swim away at your touch. Amazing!
New and Traditional Disability Supports
The Miami Hub sensory wall is the first to be installed in an Afford Day Program in all of Australia. These new technologies, coupled with traditional disability supports as well as Allied Health services, make the Miami Hub a base for all disability services under one roof.
In addition to this amazing new sensory wall, Miami Hub also features an engaging sensory room which touches on the senses of smell, touch, sound and sight to provide a complete sensory experience. Gentle light, soothing sounds and relaxing textures create a supportive learning environment.
The sensory room includes bubble tubes which support colour recognition and hand-eye coordination. Individuals can change the colours and watch the bubble flow. This all supports cause and effect learning.
The fibre optics that cascade down from the ceiling of the sensory room at Miami Hub has also been incorporated for all clients, to promote deep sensory engagement. The fibre optics stimulate and hold attention. They also provide a soothing, tactile experience.
Afford Miami Hub is Open!
The Open Day for the new Miami Hub attracted visitors from right around Miami and the Gold Coast. Everyone had the chance to enjoy a free sausage sizzle, as well as getting some valuable NDIS information about supports to suit their needs.
A beautiful sunny day complemented the brightly coloured faces of attendees who opted to have their face painted. The golf hitting bag, organised specially for the open by pro-golfer and Afford Supporter, Lee Harrington, was another popular activity that was great for hand-eye coordination and skill development.
The site was pumping with live music and a drumming area for all to get involved. There were even large over-sized outdoor games such as Jenga, Connect4, outdoor bowling, putt-putt, as well as arts and crafts to keep everyone entertained.
Afford is excited to be able to offer this new support hub to Gold Coast locals and provide clients with industry leading services and state-of-the-art technology.
