We can install and adapt sensory rooms just about anywhere; from hospitals, day centres and care settings, to domestic properties.
Our sensory rooms come fully supplied with all the necessary equipment and can be tailored to meet the needs of the people that will use them.
Sensory rooms are designed for people who may have limited visual, auditory and processing skills as well as those who find the outside world over stimulating at times. A combination of lights, sound, touch and visuals are used within sensory rooms, to both calm and stimulate. The idea is to create an environment where a child or adult can stimulate most of their senses, in a safe way.
There are five main senses; touch, taste, sight, smell and hearing. In some people, these senses can be oversensitive and in others they can be difficult to stimulate.
Just a quick one to let you know that myself and my staff are over the moon with the new hygiene suite that your company have installed for us in our sensory department. The room is fit for purpose now and is a modern, clean, comfortable environment for all who use it. I would like to add your work force are outstanding; keeping the project area clean and safe at all times. Myself and my site team look forward to working with you and your staff in the future.
Traditionally, sensory rooms have been used for children with autism, special needs and sensory processing disorder. Now, they are used in a wide range of settings and for different types of people. Sensory rooms can benefit almost anyone who has sensory or communication difficulties. From young to old, sensory rooms can work for anyone who needs time away from the world or for those who require more stimulation.
Additionally, interactive sensory rooms can be used for learning by taking advantage of technology such as tablets and other touch screen devices.
People receive different benefits from sensory rooms; a child with autism may find a sensory room a welcoming distraction when they find the outside world too much. A sensory room in this case, will both calm and distract. For someone with limited sensory perception, a sensory room can provide enjoyment that they would ordinarily be able to perceive. Sensory rooms may also be beneficial to older people with Alzheimer’s, proving a safe space where their senses can be stimulated.
At least one in every twenty people may be affected by Sensory Processing Disorder? It is most commonly seen in children with ADHD, Autism, and fragile X syndrome but can affect anyone.
