What is a Sensory Room?
A Sensory Room is a specially designed space aimed to stimulate the senses, promoting de-escalation and/or encouraging engagement. Sensory experiences can be hugely beneficial to children and adults alike. They are great for promoting a range of developmental skills. For example, colour recognition, hand-eye coordination, fine and gross motor skills.
These wonderful resources can be found in a whole host of settings. For instance, Schools, Children’s Centres, Care Homes, and even Prisons. They can be extremely useful for people with autism, sensory processing disorders, SEBD and PMLD, as well as many other disabilities.
A variety of sensory equipment and can be set up to target specific needs and purposes. Maybe the aim is to create a "Calming Room", which is used to aid in the de-escalation of the client. Including items such as floor and wall padding for protection, along with colour changing mood lighting for distracting and calming.
Alternatively, a Sensory Space could be about interacting with their surrounding. This would be referred to as an "Interactive Sensory Room". Incorporating items such as Interactive Sensory Switches and/or App Control. New technology has provided the ability to offer so many more features and special educational benefits.
