Multiple Multisensory Rooms: Myth Busting the Magic by Joanna Grace
Multisensory rooms are widely used across the country in schools, care settings, hospitals and homes. Even settings such as football stadiums and airports are installing multisensory environments. Nevertheless, a significant lack of effective research has led to a sense of unease around sensory rooms. This crucial book explores the use of multisensory rooms in order to ease that anxiety; taking the mystery out of multisensory rooms, and supporting the reader to reflect and make the most out of their space.
Key features include:
- Guidance on creating sensory spaces on any budget, to suit any level of need.
- An overview of the history of multisensory rooms, and a detailed exploration of the actual way in which the rooms are used today.
- A framework for evaluating existing practices and equipment, in order to maximise the potential of the room.
- A focus on the practitioner as the most important piece of 'equipment' in any sensory room.
Written by a leading sensory specialist in a fully accessible way, this book is an invaluable tool for anybody who uses, or is considering using, a multisensory room.
