After two years of planning and rigorous fundraising, our brand-new sensory room will soon be a reality!
Huddersfield Giants Community Trust is delighted to start the preparations for the installation work to begin of the new Sensory room from SensoryKraft.
Located within The Zone, the sensory room will offer specialist facilities for individuals and small groups of young people who would benefit from expertly designed sensory stimuli- including those with sensory problems, anxiety, ADHD and autistic spectrum disorder.
The multi-purpose sensory room will create a calming safe haven which offers something for everyone- the user can choose to enjoy the sensory experience either passively, or more interactively for an exciting and educational immersive experience. The room provides an exploration of all the senses by expertly combining gentle audio, visual and tactile stimuli. The sensory room offers adaptable sensory experiences to best meet the needs of each individual user.
The multi-purpose space will feature:
• State-of-the-art interactive floor and wall projector system featuring educational games, puzzles and scenarios.
• Dynamic room colour lighting, including: LED washed walls, mesmerising light tube and infinity tunnel, UV lighting, tactile and UV fibre optic strands and twinkle carpet.
• Relaxed wipe-clean seating areas, featuring a built-in vibration system to be used in conjunction with the room audio system.
This Sensory Room will ensure that children and young people from across Kirklees and West Yorkshire have high quality and accessible facilities that support the development of their physical, social, emotional, and mental health and wellbeing.
The multi-sensory room will provide a space that enables young people to explore and identify their emotions, support the development of core skills such as: self-awareness, self-regulation, motor skills, and social and emotional development. It will provide a stimulating, yet secure environment that nurtures, giving space and time to develop essential skills such as self-control, self-regulation and empathy- all of which are essential elements in the holistic development of a child.
Chief Executive of Huddersfield Giants Community Trust Lisa Darwin commented, “The provision of a multi-sensory room will lead to increased holistic health and wellbeing and community inclusion. We will also have the capacity to invite families to have ‘Sensory Room Birthday Parties’ ensuring that children of all abilities can celebrate and socialise with their peers, within their own community.”
The Zone will be looking to offer the sensory room service to local organisations, special schools and families whom can positively gain from the endless benefits that the equipment and technology have to offer.
