Multi-Sensory rooms are specially designed environments which give users an opportunity to completely relax or access a wide range of sensory experiences for therapy, learning or fun Multi-Sensory rooms are used by people of all ages and all abilities for relaxation, focused work, stimulation, physiotherapy, communication and stress release. They are sometimes also used for specific work, such as a teaching tool for children with additional needs.
Our Sensory Room has been designed by the Play Department, the Occupational Therapy Department, and the Projects Office to offer the best possible environment for children and young people. This project has been funded by the fundraising department.
“We would like to say a very sincere thank you to our sponsor – Vodafone Ireland Foundation. This partnership was created and facilitated by the Fundraising Office at the Hospital.”
