Snoezelen for Autism
Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Environments provide the tools and a suitable, gradable and safe environment in which Health and Social Care professionals can carry out assessments and interventions.
Treatment and care should take into account individual needs and preferences but also be flexible enough to respond to changing needs as the individual matures or responds to treatment.
When it comes to supporting and caring for individuals with autism, the physical environment is a vital component of any treatment plan.
Snoezelen Multi-Sensory rooms are individually designed according to user briefs and specifications. The whole environment can be adapted and the rooms personalized, graded, and tailored to the needs of the individual. Meaningful sounds, lighting, videos, and products can be themed to the interests of the user or specific learning goals.
Where parents or care professionals need to take into account an individual’s sensory sensitivities to lighting, noise levels and the color of walls and furnishings, a Snoezelen sensory room is ideal.
