Sensory Room at The Experience
Nestled at the back of the arena, lies our sensory room. This private space offers state-of-the-art, computer controlled sensory equipment, sensory toys, lighting, music and aromas to provide a fully immersive multi-sensory experience.
Users can recreate the magic of nature, from a dewy green forest, underwater world with marine life, sunny beach or calming winter wonderland. Of course, you might also choose a sing-along musical experience – we can cater to your needs.
The sensory room offers a safe space for the public to come along and experience. It is a great resource for children and adults with sensory impairments, complex learning difficulties, autism or ADHD. The sensory room is also popular for baby sensory groups and toddlers.
Sensory Room Equipment
The multi-sensory room features an interactive floor, a large projector showing multiple scenes, mist and aroma machines, glowing bubble tube, tactile disc, fibre optic glow lights, a vibrating platform, and a range of sensory toys and equipment. Mood lighting can be adapted by turning a sensory cube.
Benefits of Sensory
In addition to promoting relaxation which supports overall well-being, children and adults with sensory impairments, complex learning difficulties, autism or ADHD can benefit from tracking, colour matching, vocalisation and auditory tasks. Benefits also include better hand-eye co-ordination, vocalisation and problem solving. The multi-sensory experience provides a variety of stimulus and experiences for all users.
What’s more – it’s FREE
Yes, you read that right – a half hour session is free for all users. Thanks to the extremely generous funding from the People’s Postcode Trust, The Barrack Charitable Trust and The Boshier-Hinton Foundation, we can offer this excellent facility at no cost.
We would ask for a small, optional donation if you enjoy your visit and this will help us to continue to improve the sensory experience for our users.
