Description

All children and adults with disabilities can benefit from using a multi-sensory room. These environments have proven to be extremely valuable to those with disabilities, some evidence suggests that those with challenging behaviour can improve and may be reduced over a long term period. When an individual is able to explore their senses it allows them to be creative and develop their movement and concentration skills.

These unique sensory rooms have a range of bespoke equipment creating both a calming and interactive atmosphere, where colours flash through the fibre-optic strands along the floor; streams of blue and green simultaneously twinkle through the bubble tubes and the disco ball sparkles. Our users can enjoy lying on the water beds dreaming away to the sounds of classical music or play in the mirrors creating their very own personal party space with pop music in the background.

We can accommodate a maximum of 8 people in the room, including carers.
