What is a Snoezelen Room

Historically, sensory rooms have been used primarily with people with moderate to severe developmental difficulties and older adults with cognitive impairments.The idea to expand and the use of sensory rooms for individuals with hearing/vision loss is a more recent application.  An essential part of this development is to maintain an emphasis on engaging meaningful activities and in recognizing the relationship and importance of the therapeutic use of self.The enhancement of the physical environment, including the use of sensory rooms, affords a more nurturing and recovery orientated therapeutic environment.”Tina Champagne M.Ed.
