Sensory Rooms

There are so many things to consider when designing a room for a child with Autism or special needs.

The first thing that I like to do, is to get to know the child's personality. What they like. What makes them smile and what keeps their focus and attention.

Things to consider:-

Colour

Soft purple, blue or green walls can be calming and white walls are great for projecting LED sensory lighting.

Lighting

Once you have decided on the color, provide lighting accents with a bubble tube or fiber optics, enhancing the calming effect.

Activities

How about a climbing wall? Or a gaming area? Provide bean bags or gaming chairs for your child to sit on, or a comfy carpeted area or play mat,

How about a swing or a suspended chair?

Consider using a swivel device to reduce wear and tear on your hook and allow for gentle spinning.

Aromatherapy

How about using a calming scent in the room (please be aware of allergies first)

Lavender is a very calming scent, or maybe choose a zingy lemon zest or a refreshing mint.
