Sensory areas or Multi-Sensory rooms are areas that are generally used by those with moderate to profound special needs and which have been found to have significant benefits to users of all ages.
They are designed to include specialist equipment that utilise light, sound and interaction to create a calming and relaxing environment.
With the introduction of interactive features such as 'switched' systems and interactive projector systems, these areas can provide users with essential insight into the relationship between cause and effect.
In the context of a family entertainment centre, a multi sensory room can provide an opportunity to create real inclusion for children of all abilities. Specific sessions can be allocated for children with special needs, which may well fill a very specific hole in the local services on offer.
Not only that, but these areas are interesting and fun in their own right, so there is nothing to stop users of all abilities using them.
