Sensory environments have been a part of occupational therapy since the 1970s. However, only in recent years has the importance of providing appropriate sensory stimulation become more mainstream. With the help of additional funding for more extensive studies, research has shown that both kids and adults can improve when exposed to proper sensory integration therapy.
The perfect sensory room combines ideal lighting and sounds with items such as crash pads, pressure machines, bubble columns or swing sets. Each piece of equipment in your room will be designed to suit the needs of the child; those who need to blow off steam or self-stimulate enjoy swinging, rocking or crashing whereas an overstimulated person gravitates more toward soothing sounds and sights.
Learning and comfort rooms can address the need for relaxation, stimulation, socialization or sensory integration all at once. When creating a sensory room, you may want to focus on tactile needs, proprioception, taste or smell integration, or simply play time.
