The benefits of sensory rooms are summarized by Mark D. Benigni, Superintendent of Meriden Schools, “All humans are sensory beings, as this is how we explore and process information within our world. Sensory rooms are special spaces within the school that allow students of all abilities to self-regulate, rebalance and have their sensory needs met.” At my school, we want to design the room in a creative, appropriate way to address the various needs of the students within the school community. This room will be available throughout the school day for students with varying sensory, self-regulatory, and behavioral needs. We would like the design of the room to be intentional; a classroom that feels and looks different from other classrooms within the school. As soon as children walk in the door, they should recognize this space as theirs and as something to be treated differently. The specific design and programming of our sensory room will allow for purposeful exploration within the room, as well as modeling and small group instruction. Significant aspects of the room we would like to include are specific music, mindful breathing, yoga, and stations all with specific sensory and self-regulatory concepts in mind. At my school, we envision a room that will provide a means for all students to find appropriate strategies and tools for self-regulation, ensuring participation as active, calm learners within their school and community. Sensory rooms provide tactile, auditory, and kinesthetic input in a safe and comfortable environment. We can stimulate self-awareness through small group instruction, mindful breathing, yoga postures and stations throughout the space.
