Multisensory Learning Environment
Equipment in this room includes a bubble column, specialist lighting, a projector which casts slow-moving images or colours around the walls, a mirror ball with spotlight and switch activated fibre-optic sprays.
Walls are lined with tactile panels which include mirrors, beads, bells and switches to maximise the sensory experience. Other activities include vibrating pillows, aromatherapy materials and portable sensory boxes. There is also an interactive whiteboard and surround sound equipment.
The room is also kitted out with specialist switches to suit the physical abilities of students. These switches offer active rather than passive learning experiences and provide communication and choice-making opportunities for students.
The multi-sensory learning environment also provides the perfect setting for developing fine and gross motor skills as well as a great venue to maximise supporting hearing and vision needs.
