Interactive Sensory Rooms
Interactive sensory rooms build on the concept of traditional calming sensory rooms and their enticing sensory stimulation, helping users to learn valuable life skills. These rooms enable users to influence their surroundings and receive compelling feedback and rewards in the form of sensory development. When a user is more emotionally engaged with their lesson, they are not only more likely to participate but are much more likely to retain the information and skills they learn.
Incorporating switches designed to encourage interaction helps users to develop competencies, such as cause and effect understanding, colour recognition and switching skills. Interactive sensory rooms can motivate users to interact with not just their surroundings but also fellow humans, teaching social interaction, turn-taking and co-operation skills.
Experia's Interactive Sensory Rooms are carefully crafted to consider accessibility. We believe that everyone should be able to use and benefit from our products, regardless of ability. That's why we've created a wide range of switches, including large pushbuttons and colour pads, as well as a sound switch for users who only have the ability to speak or who may need the interactive sensory room to encourage vocalisation skills. Our range also includes soft-play switches such as the Qube and a balance beam to develop gross motor skills.
The Experia IRiS+ app also means that you can control your IRiS+ interactive sensory room from your smartphone or tablet. With 12 different modes and an extensive scale of sensitivities and control settings, the app can be used by people with a wide variety of abilities. For example, why not place the smartphone flat on a user's wheelchair tray, put it in Compass mode, and enable them to control the effects in the room by spinning themselves around? From cost-effective and space-saving sensory corner set-ups to larger, more intensive interactive sensory rooms, to the coveted MiLE (multisensory interactive learning environment), Experia's range is sure to include something for everyone.
