Sensory rooms are small, carved-out spaces in large, noisy venues offering a calming environment away from overwhelming stimuli. While these spaces are often thought of as meeting the needs of the Autism Spectrum community, they also hold value for parents of young children, those suffering from PTSD, and many others working through cognitive and emotional distress.

Efforts can be made in design and construction to apply simple solutions that drastically improve the experience for every user of a space. Accessibility and universal design experts can help you understand the specific needs of the community that would benefit from a sensory room and provide guidance in determining thoughtful design solutions and hardware options.
