Does your multisensory room follow the AAA principles?

Part Two.

Here are 7 key questions to consider when designing a multisensory room:

1.    Do you need an innovative ‘blank canvas’ sensory studio? 

2.    Would a traditional multisensory room benefit your learners? 

3.    In either room, have you developed a set of ‘tools’ to enable the practitioner to create new sensory learning experiences? 

4.    What are the learning strengths of your learners? 

5.    Do you have equipment that is easy to control and operate by the practitioner? 

6.    Have you a space that enables easy access to the curriculum – at any level? 

7.    Is this a space to achieve simple control of sensory experiences by learners and staff alike? 

Remember, the most successful sensory room designs are those based on the needs of the learners who use the space.
