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:-


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


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


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.


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.
