In our classes for children with additional needs, we have multi-sensory areas.

A multi-sensory area, or environment, is a dedicated space or room where sensory stimulation can be controlled, presented in isolation or combination, packaged for active or passive interaction, and matched to fit the perceived motivation, interests, leisure, relaxation, therapeutic and/or educational needs of the user.

A multi-sensory environment can offer people with cognitive impairments and other challenging conditions the opportunity to enjoy and control a variety of sensory experiences.  It generates a relaxing and calming effect, but also activates different perception areas aimed at basal stimulation for those who are neurologically impaired.
