3 Reasons to Love Our Sensory Rooms at Redbank House
All children and adults with disabilities can benefit from using a sensory room. These environments have proven to be extremely valuable to those with disabilities. Some evidence suggests that those with challenging behaviour can improve and may be reduced over a long term period.
Our service users Margaret and Angela suffer from Dementia and thoroughly enjoy the sessions in the sensory rooms. Margaret said “I feel like a child again, I love it!”
