Snoezelen - Multisensory Environments
March 8, 2012
Hosted by Leah Brenda Smith
Snoezelen multisensory environments offer a wide range of equipment and products that provide tactile stimulation, visual appeal, enjoyable sounds, and enticing smells that are pleasing to the senses and offer endless opportunities for exploration and satisfaction. Often within a few minutes general anxiety and stress seems to melt away. People that are withdrawn come alive and show a keen interested in exploring the new environment. Just like our nutritional dietary needs and preferences, we all have sensory diet needs and preferences. Our central nervous system needs the right combination of stimulus in order to maintain a good state of awareness, ability and well-being. During this week’s show we will learn about the history and philosophy of Snoezelen and some indicators so you can recognize sensory overload and sensory deprivation. We will also explore the benefits of Snoezelen and the various populations that are being served through use of these specialized environments.
