Rhino Sensory UK’s latest news and company updates
There is so much more to the world of ‘Sensory’ than people may originally think. A ‘Sensory Room’ is an umbrella terminology used to categorise a variety of sensory spaces which are specially designed to have a positive impact on specific needs or disabilities.
People with Autism can often have trouble with Sensory Integration, which can be the root cause of problems in development, information processing and behaviour. They have difficulty making connections between their tactile, vestibular and proprioceptive sensory systems, any of which can be overactive or not active enough as a person interacts with his or her environment.
World Autism Awareness Day is an internationally recognised day which is taking place on the 2nd April every year. Throughout this day thousands of people take part in activities to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society.
This year World Autism Awareness Week will be taking place from the 1 – 7 April.
Over the years more and more awareness of Autism has been raised but, there is still so much more work to be done to make more people 100% understand what Autism is.

Thank you for completing the installation of our new sensory room at Hillcrest, Northern Counties School, Jesmond, Newcastle. We are over the moon with the room and the service you have provided from start to finish has been second to none. We would like to add some further features at a later date when we get some more money and we will definitely be coming back to Rhino. A very big thank you!!
Christine Robson – Occupational Therapist
Hillcrest, Northern Counties School, Jesmond, Newcastle
We have had our sensory room two years now and it’s as good as new. It is used every day by the children who attend our Play and Development Centre. It’s so versatile, we use it for quiet sensory sessions and for more energetic rough and tumble play. The children really love it and each benefit from the room in their own individual way. The after sales service has been second to none and quality of the product meets fully with our strict infection control policies. A big thank you once again to all at Rhino UK.

Thank you to Rhino for the excellent service you have provided. The Sensory Room is brilliant and provides a variety of sensory experiences. I have received some excellent feedback from other staff, professionals, children and parents. The installation was stress free and very professional; all equipment is of a high quality. I would recommend you to other Children’s Centres and other services for the quality of work and experience.
Linda Dunn – Outreach Manager
The sensory equipment has transformed a small, unused room, into a fantastic space for children and parents to relax and spend quality time together. Rhino UK were extremely efficient and helped us plan the appropriate resources needed for the room.
