The benefits of using our facility

Calming effects

Some children and adults can have negative reactions to sensory experiences, which can cause them distress and discomfort. Our facility provides a soothing environment to help those using it, self-regulate, regaining control of their emotions.

Stimulation

Our facility contains specially designed toys and items that allow the users to become more aware of their senses, allowing them to explore and gain extra sensory stimulation to encourage feelings of awareness and wellbeing in the world around them.

Socialisation

In some cases, individuals may benefit from using our facility alone, however, it can also provide a place for them to practise interacting with others. Therefore, we allow up to two individuals in the Sensory Room with their adult/career at a given time and up to 6 children using our whole facility. This then provides a safe, stress-free space for the individuals to move and explore with others.

Improved focus

Some individuals can find it hard to concentrate, often feeling distracted and struggling to pay attention to what is going on around them. Our facility can help individuals increase their awareness of their surroundings, helping them to cope with real-life situations and enhance their concentration in environments such as the classroom and workplace.

Motor skills development

The equipment in our facility allows the individuals the opportunity to develop both their fine and gross motors skills in a safe, fun and engaging environment.

Cognitive development

Our facility is a great space to help individuals explore cause and effect as they learn about how their actions influence the world around them.

Sensory development

We have made sure our facility provides a space for individuals of all ages to explore their senses and their brains' reactions to those experiences in a safe, stress-free environment. Our carefully chosen equipment exposes them to the brain’s complex reactions to things they touch or hear, whilst developing motor skills and balance, as well as their muscle functions. Here they can learn how to process and control those experiences when out in the world around them.
