Sensory environments offer people of all ages a safe place in which they can learn, enjoy, explore and receive support. Whether for stimulation of the senses, learning and interaction, or complete relaxation, entering a space that is calming and peaceful allows one also to become calm and peaceful.
At Twinkle house, we take great pride in our first-class facilities that have assisted and enriched so many young lives. A multi-sensory environment can allow the user to control their surroundings, offering a sense of empowerment. Many of our facilities are free to children and young people with Disabilities and Additional needs or at very low cost. However, if you require further use of these facilities, we are also happy to hire out rooms, by the hour, for a minimal charge.
The concept of a Multi-sensory Environment (MSE) is widely accepted as an effective therapy for special needs populations and their carers/caregivers and is equally effective for anyone of any age in need of relaxation or stimulation of the primary senses.
The Multi-sensory environment provides the user with the means to control their space and what is happening. It can empower the care-giver to find the optimum level of stimulation for energising or relaxing the user. The effects will often carry over outside the space into other activities (such as in home life); reducing the agitated behaviour, stimulating speech, language and co-ordination, or acting as a reward.
The most effective use of our sensory facilities is found on a one-to-one basis with supervision and caregiver interaction being vital components. Without an aim or understanding of what can be achieved and how to work towards achieving that aim, the experience of a session is surely wasted.
All our Sensory Rooms are available for any age or ability to hire
Twinkle House has a wonderful therapeutic Hydrotherapy Pool with sensory mood lighting and music of your choice, making the experience one that is personal to the user, engaging the senses.
