A sensory room is a specifically designed environment for people ages 3 to adult with various ability levels to experience a variety of senses and to assist in developing specific skills. Sensory rooms are used to create a safe atmosphere to relax and benefit specific sensory processing difficulties. ​

 

SWSRA’s Sensory Depot offers a wide variety of sensory equipment to accommodate each participant’s needs. The room will offer aromatherapy, relaxing sounds and lights, interactive tools to promote skills and tranquility, bubble tubes, fiber optic lights, and much more! ​

Sensory Depot contains equipment to activate every sense; smell, touch, sound, sight, and taste. Sensory sessions are participant led to accommodate individual needs with SWSRA sensory staff supervision at all times. 

The Sensory Depot will allow SWSRA to better serve the community.  It is one of the FIRST recreational sensory rooms in the South Suburbs!
