WHISH Sensory Room

WHISH Sensory Room

A multi-sensory sensory room is a stimulating environment aimed at developing coordination, motor skills, colour recognition, communication and sensory skills for children and adults with sensory impairments.
The senses can be auditory, visual, tactile, motor, cognition, communication, proprioception or vestibular.
The facilities can be used both passively and interactively to:

  • calm overactive behaviours
  • relax and bond with children / parents / carers   
  • engage or stimulate the senses to learn
  • control new movements or recover / re-learn / rehabilitate

Research shows that for individuals with learning and physical disabilities, sensory impairments and autism, regular access to a sensory room or sensory equipment assists with sensory development. Sensory integration is effective in addressing challenges associated with sensory processing problems and behavioural difficulties in children and adults.

Individuals with regular access to sensory stimulation can make significant improvements in emotional health and enhance their learning experience.
