Non-ProfitsEducation: Private Schools

About Us

Founded in October of 2007, It’s a Sensory World! was created by a parent, Rekha Suryanarayana, and a teacher, Angela Stephens. Together their vision was to create a space where children with special needs would not only be accepted but celebrated. It’s a Sensory World! began as the first recreational sensory gym in the state and the second in the nation. Over time, It’s a Sensory World! has grown to include unique, sensory-based educational and recreational programming filling the service delivery gaps in the region. It’s a Sensory World! serves hundreds of children with special needs and their families from 70+ zip codes throughout North Texas and is well-known in the community for providing heartfelt, high-quality services.

ISW Academy
Welcome to It’s a Sensory World! Academy, where we believe every child has the desire and ability to learn!
It’s a Sensory World! Academy was developed to serve children ages 2 to 18 with developmental delays and disabilities, specifically those who have not yet found success in traditional educational settings. At ISW Academy, we take a whole-child, “bottom-up” approach to development and learning. We aim to give each child the tools necessary to find success in a group environment, both socially and academically.
InterActive Kids
InterActive Kids is a social skills program at It’s a Sensory World! that will equip children with the skills and strategies needed to be purposefully included in their community. This program is appropriate for any child, teen, or young adult needing to work on their social and emotional skills.
