Residential and In-Home Sensory Rooms
Our sensory rooms are for more than just medical facilities, they can be tailored to fit your home and support the needs of your loved ones struggling with sensory processing disorders.
Safe Sensory Integration
Sensory integration is how we respond to the world around us through our senses. Certain conditions can impact how sensory information is translated to the brain, affecting the resulting behaviours. Under or overreacting to certain stimuli can result in undue stress, frustration, meltdowns, or alternatively, complete apathy. Sensory integration is often targeted in therapy. But for loved ones with special needs, therapy is an ongoing process. A person’s needs do not end when they walk out of a school or clinic. Bridging the gap between therapy appointments can start at home with a professionally designed sensory room or a few well-placed sensory products and furnishings. A dedicated space can help a person explore controlled stimuli and develop those incredibly important sensory integration skills.
Building a Sanctuary
“Home is not where you live but where they understand you.” – Christian Morgenstern
These words ring especially true for those with ADHD, autism, and other conditions that affect our senses and perception of the world. It can be a challenge to feel cared for and listened to when you can’t communicate or experience things in the same way that others do. Sensory rooms create a sanctuary where your loved one doesn’t have to feel pressure to mask or perform. They can come into this space at the end of a stimulating day and play with a projector or stare at the bubble tubes and just do whatever feels right to them in a calming environment.
The calming effects of a sensory room give your loved one the opportunity to regulate themselves as well as creating space for building your relationship. Whether you’re a parent just trying to do your best, or another family member who has stepped in to fill the role of caregiver, fostering a healthy, loving relationship is vital to both you and your loved one. You know how chaotic it can be to raise a child in a world that’s not quite built for their condition. Sensory rooms allow you both to find some peace so that you can learn and listen to each other at your own pace and in your own unique way.
Our sensory rooms are designed with an individualized approach to ensure that your loved one gets the most out of the space. Request a quote today and find out how a sensory room could help support your home!
