Zach's Sensory Room
This is a home sensory room created for 3 year old Zach. Zach has severe learning difficulties and Autism, this can make it hard to engage with him. The sensory room has given Tricy the opportunity to access Zach's world.
Zach's eye contact has improved vastly and he tracks the products in the sensory room with his eyes. This allows him to communicate and tell us when he wants to switch the bubbles on and off.
The snoezelen room at home has provided a safe haven for Zach. Meeting new people was very difficult for him and he would have meltdowns. Zach can now escape in to this sensory room, which helps him to relax and calm down.
Zach receives a lot of feedback from the bubble tubes and vibrations that he can feel in the padded base. We drape fibre optics over him and he uses the Talking Cube by himself to interact with the room.
From initial visit, design and installation all requirements were met. The room is a good balance between play and relaxation.
