Carinya’s Sensory Room helps participants with high needs and those with behaviours of concern interact with the world around them, and experience mental and physical relaxation in a safe environment that builds up their confidence and their ability.
“Our Sensory Room is an amazing room filled with a variety of stimulating equipment that assists the people we support to develop and engage in their senses in a safe environment. The Sensory Room assists people with sensory impairment to learn and interact with the world around them in a safe and supported way,” explains Carinya instructor Tina.
“Our participants have experienced much joy and meaningfulness in exploring our Sensory Room. It has provided them opportunity to engage in stimulating activity that is meaningful to their individual sensory needs and wants and has provided a relaxing and soothing effect.”
Unfortunately it is struggling to cope with demand. Carinya’s participant numbers have risen and while up to 40 people use our Sensory Room, it only fits a maximum of 10 people at a time. There are also a number of people in wheelchairs which is difficult to accommodate in the room.
We would love to buy a Mobile Sensory Station which would enable us to turn any room into a functioning Sensory space. The unique design incorporates all the key elements of a Sensory Room in a single, portable unit.
Fitted with four easy-glide lockable wheels and designed to fit through a single door with ease, all the multi-sensory equipment is self-contained on the station – it just has to be wheeled into a room and plugged into a single power socket.
Please help us reach our appeal target of $22,789 and make this special place accessible for more participants.
