Imagine a world where there is the freedom to roam and discover new experiences uninhibited, an environment where there is safe and imaginative learning and play that is openly encouraged.
Sensory environments support interaction, discovery and communication enabling faster learning and development through increased awareness of the surroundings. These environments encourage stimulation of the senses - sight, sound, touch and smell.
Such environments are challenging and stimulating for both children and adults with special needs providing interactivity for those developing cognitive and physical abilities, encouraging communication within a unique learning environment.
Sensory rooms or areas provide a calming and relaxed atmosphere where professionals are able to observe and assess clients and monitor and detect changes in ability.
The environments can be as interactive and equipped as needs or budgets dictate incorporating the colourful display of bubble tubes and different lighting effects through to tactile panels and projected images. These flexible environments can grow and develop as new equipment and ideas are produced enabling atmospheres to be created for theme activities, curriculum work, play or relaxation.
A wealth of sensory and sound opportunities are waiting to be discovered.
