A Sensory Room is specially designed room which combines a range of stimuli to help individuals develop and engage their senses. These can include lights, colors, sounds, and sensory soft play objects, aromas all within a safe environment that allows the person using it to explore and interact without risk.

Individuals with varying sensory disorders such as autism benefit greatly from a sensory room experience. This is what is commonly associated with a sensory room. Another population that can benefit greatly is those who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
