Where to buy a resonance board?

    I have got some pupil premium money to spend on a pupil with SEN and the SALT has suggested I purchase a resonance board. I am having trouble finding one to buy - have found one by 'soundabout' at £249 but that's all. Does anyone know of any other companies who sell them? I know they are easy to create with a piece of plywood but as I have some money to spend was hoping to get a purpose built one.
    Thanks.

    Don't know of anywhere that sells these except soundabout but having one made for you is easier than it first seems -
    Do you have any parents with woodworking skills or maybe a local business that works in wood? Some are only too happy to make a bespoke board for the cost of materials (especially as they are so easy to make) plus publicity. Often the local FE college has a student or woodwork apprentice who would make one as part of their project. Also look in the local paper for a handyperson who you could pay to make one to your spec.

    Thanks for the reply - looks like its buy the Soundabout one or make one. I will look into local businesses who would like the publicity of helping a special school. You did make me think that maybe our senior pupils could make one in DT if they are that easy. Thanks again - its the first time I've posted anything so glad to get a reply.
