What is the Multi Sensory room?
The multi sensory room is a great new facility from Wear Mencap. The room is designed to foster an atmosphere of relaxation, through the use of specifically designed equipment, including lights, sounds and a variety of objects.
Multi-Sensory room's are specifically designed towards young children, and individuals with various different disabilities. A facility such as this has many potential benefits for children with an array of different disabilities, as it creates a stimulating and yet calming environment for the children to experience and among many other things it can help to improve hand eye co-ordination, motor skills and develop language skills. Research shows that sensory rooms are particularly useful for children with sight or hearing problems and been shown to be particularly beneficial for children with autism.
