Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room
The generosity of a Trillium Foundation grant allowed Brantwood to provide a fully equipped Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room.
What is a Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room?
A Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room incorporates a selection of specialized sensory equipment and materials that help people with special needs progress in their education and therapy goals. A Snoezelen room incorporates a blend of sights, sounds, textures and motion to provide stimulation and promote relaxation.
Individuals using the Snoezelen Room can enjoy the environment by either controlling the equipment used or reflectively enjoying the experience.
The Snoezelen room is available for use by appointment. People supporting individuals using the room are trained on the operation and care of equipment prior to use.
