Sensitivity Unit

The Craigslea Sensitivity Unit was established in 1983. 


The Sensitivity Unit offers a variety of educational programs to provide children and adults with a greater awareness of the needs and challenges faced by people with disabilities.


These hands on workshops vary between two to three hours depending upon the program selected.  A sample of activities include:

  • A walkway to simulate the sensation of walking with low muscle control. 
  • A tunnel which demonstrates how you must use different senses to find your way when you cannot see.  Wheelchair activities demonstrate the barriers around the community. 
  • A task to show learning difficulty.
  • Plus many more challenges and talks covering a wide variety of topics.


A visit to the Unit is essential for students and sits within the curriculum.  A small fee applies.


Training organisations, community groups, companies and government agencies can all benefit by offering this affordable program to all adults.  Great for team building.


We look forward to welcoming you. 




Open Monday to Friday.  Evening and Saturday programs available.


The Sensitivity Unit is located at Craigslea State School Chermside West.
