“A Sensory Room has been an invaluable resource for us. Our son has special needs so we use the room frequently and I can’t begin to tell you how much we appreciate the use of it. On first using this room, our son had very little speech, poor eye contact and struggled with interaction. He also has sensory issues. He loves the lighting. This room has enabled us to gain interaction with him. His eye contact has improved immensely, he learnt his colours which he is intrigued by. Well done and thank you’’
