WHAT IS SENSORY ROOM EQUIPMENT?
Sensory equipment is specifically designed to stimulate one or more of the senses in order to help everything from brain development to social skills. Whilst sight, touch and sound are the three most common types of sensory play equipment, all manner of equipment can be beneficial if it can immerse its user in a new environment or stimulate even a memory.
