Importance of Sensory Rooms
The human body receives sensory information through its five major senses i.e. Taste, Touch, Smell, Hearing and Sight. Naturally these senses are responsible for receiving sensory stimuli. These sensory stimuli then elicit a response from the person. This happens because of the connection between the senses and the human brain. This is called sensory integration. Sensory integration happens naturally for most people however for people with developmental disorders, responding to these stimuli may not be a comfortable experience.
The responses can go both ways. In some cases the person may not even respond to sensory stimuli and in other cases, the response may be too extreme. These negative and imbalanced responses can cause a lot of problems for the person. There are many different ways to help such people normalize their response to external sensory stimuli. One of those ways is Sensory Rooms.
What Are Sensory Rooms?
Sensory rooms are specialized places or rooms that are designed to stimulate a balanced response to external sensory stimuli. These are great for children and adults who suffer from developmental issues and a range of other disabilities. Sensory rooms have shown to be very promising. They can help with developing several different developmental skills which can help reduce negative response to the stimuli and encourage a more balanced response.
How Do Sensory Rooms Work?
There is no standard design for sensory rooms. The room is designed in such a way that it encourages people to respond to different events and environment in a positive way. The lighting, the items placed in the room and all other features of the room are designed specifically to elicit a balanced response from the person. The ambience of the room is also very helpful to people who are suffering from lack of low sensory integration.
One thing to keep in mind is that different people may require different environments in a sensory room. So the space is designed based on the sensory response you want to encourage in the person. So if a person has a problem with responding to touch, the sensory room will specifically be designed to promote a balanced response to touch.
What Are The Benefits Of Sensory Rooms?
There are different tools that can help people with sensory issues. One of the most promising ways to work on your sensory skills is through sensory rooms. They offer a log of great benefits for both children and adults. People with developmental challenges can get the following benefits with the help of sensory rooms.
