Multisensory rooms are widely used across the country in schools, care settings, hospitals and homes. Even settings such as football stadiums and airports are installing multisensory environments. Nevertheless, a significant lack of effective research has led to a sense of unease around sensory rooms. This crucial book explores the use of multisensory rooms in order to ease that anxiety; taking the mystery out of multisensory rooms, and supporting the reader to reflect and make the most out of their space.
Key features include:
Guidance on creating sensory spaces on any budget, to suit any level of need.
An overview of the history of multisensory rooms, and a detailed exploration of the actual way in which the rooms are used today.
A framework for evaluating existing practices and equipment, in order to maximise the potential of the room.
A focus on the practitioner as the most important piece of ‘equipment’ in any sensory room.
Written by a leading sensory specialist in a fully accessible way, this book is an invaluable tool for anybody who uses, or is considering using, a multisensory room.
