“Sensory Room” is an umbrella term used to categorize a broad variety of therapeutic spaces specifically designed and utilized to promote self-organization and positive change. There are multiple types of sensory rooms and purposes for use that have been created and implemented in different practice areas to date. When used appropriately, sensory rooms:

•    Help to create a safe space
•    Facilitate the therapeutic alliance
•    Provide opportunities for engagement in prevention and crisis de-escalation strategies, as well as a host of other therapeutic exchanges (to teach skills, offer a variety of therapeutic activities, etc.)
•    Promote self-care/self-nurturance, resilience & recovery [3]

Multi-sensory equipment is a vital and effective part in the treatment of sensory disorders with children and adults alike.
