Sensory rooms are specifically designed to develop and engage senses through lights, colours and sounds. These rooms can also help children and young people with learning disabilities to interact in a safe environment to build their confidence.
The benefits of a sensory room are:
- Sensory stimulation
- Enhanced learning through play
- Improving balance and movement
We are proud to say that in the past decade we have funded over 60 sensory rooms across the UK and Ireland, totaling over £3.4million.
One of these projects was St. John’s Primary School in Dorking, which was funded by Wooden Spoon Surrey in 2018. 28% of children attending the school have special educational needs therefore the room helps to develop self-esteem and emotional well-being.
