About Sensory Rooms
Sensory Rooms have the function of helping individuals meet the needs of all 7 senses that comprise the Sensory System, enabling sensory needs to be met.
The 7 senses include the more common known senses such as sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell, in addition to less known senses of vestibular and proprioception.
Proprioception broadly refers to a “sense of space”. It tells us where our body parts are relative to each other and also gives us information about how much force to use.
As for the vestibular system, it contributes to our balance system and our sense of spatial orientation and helps us stay upright when we sit, stand, and walk
Specially, a Sensory Room has the following characteristics:
It is a special room designed and equipped to stimulate all the senses;
It is created for persons with challenges to explore and develop their sensory skills; and
It can be used for all individuals to relax and relieve stress and anxiety and regulate their emotions in stressful situations.
A sensory room must have equipment that stimulates all the senses i.e. visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, oral, proprioception & vestibular.
It should be managed and supervised by a trained professional.
We provide consultancy work for sensory rooms based in institutions or private homes. Our services include a needs assessment, followed by idea synthesis and design conceptualisation.
We will then initiate all carpentry and construction work required for the project, as well as sourcing and procuring all sensory items which we import from overseas and are obtained from our Sensational Play store.
