On-site and community programs are available to enhance sensory stimulation by offering diverse therapies to address individual needs and preferences, including:
Sensory Garden – Offering individual and group sensory experiences that the participants may not otherwise come into contact with. This feature provides a stimulating journey through the senses, heightening awareness, and bringing positive learning experiences. In addition to providing tools to cope with stress, this program enhances communication, facilitate self-awareness, improves motor functioning, and increase cognitive abilities.
Multi-Sensory Environment – Offering a space where various types of sensory input can be provided in a controlled manner to meet specific objectives for individuals. This focused attention on sensory experience can encourage positive responses from those who may have difficulty in traditional settings, such as individuals with autism, demential, developmental disabilities, behavior problems, etc.
