A Multi-Sensory Room is a dedicated space for therapeutic development and sensory play. Filled with a collection of light, sound, and tactile effects, Multi-Sensory Rooms are environments where users, young and old, can explore their senses and emotions safely.
Away from outside distractions, these immersive environments offer the opportunity for inclusive lessons, one-on-one therapy sessions and the time and space to develop key skills such as fine and gross motor and hand-eye coordination.
Benefits of Multi-Sensory Rooms:
Stimulate and soothe all five senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste.
Build key developmental skills such as cause and effect, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills.
Create safe, calming environments that reduce the likelihood of a meltdown or panic attack.
Provide relaxation for all ages. You don’t have to be young to benefit from the stimulating visual and tactile benefits.
They’re versatile spaces for play, learning and therapy.
Fun Fact: Multi-Sensory Room’s are traditionally called Snoezelen Rooms, a blend of the dutch words ‘to snuggle’ and ‘to snooze’.
