Sensory Room

What is it?

A safe and interactive environment, where the senses can be explored through exciting installations such as a bubble tubes, disco balls and backlights.

Almost everything can be controlled by the carer present to guide and encourage exploration and discovery.

A sensory room can help to stimulate or balance the senses. It can provide a relaxing environment and help to reduce stress and anxiety.

Sessions can be adapted to different needs and favourite activities of the individual, but will usually feature a mix of calming and stimulating activities, with the session finishing with something the client finds relaxing.

The space will allow choice and control regarding lighting colours as well as allowing opportunities for interaction, turn-taking, concentration building, discovery of new sensations, encouraging movement and fun!

How does it work?

The displays are fully customisable and can be tailored to each user with lots of colour and effect combinations. This sensory experience has many different effects from extended motion, stimulation to relaxation and can all be controlled.
