Summary

The Portable Sensory Room (PSR) will provide access to sensory integration activities to 52 children with special needs, coming from low income families and living in rural areas of Georgia. Over time, the children will develop their sensory integration making them feel more comfortable and capable in their environment. A commitment for the training of day care center teachers on the most effective use of the PSR has already been secured from the McLain Association for Children.

Challenge

Fifty-two children with mental and physical developmental delays from low income families need help to increase their sensory input skills ( sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell, body awareness and balance) , in order to develop their brains and function day to day. Without such activity, these children's sensory integration will continue to be impaired making it more difficult for them to integrate into their communities.

Solution

A Portable Sensory Room (PSR) is a cost-effective solution to the sensory integration problem among special needs children. A PSR provides the tools for developmentally delayed and special needs children to develop an understanding of cause and effect , concentration, and memory abilities through play in a fun, focused environment. The portability of the PSR also allows children from rural regions to benefit from its positive effects.

Long-Term Impact

As a result of access to a multi sensory environment and effective use of the Portable Sensory Room, 52 children with special needs from low income families will be able to have an adequate response to any sensory inputs coming from their environment. They will be able to more comfortably and capably function in their environment on a day to day basis making their integration into society more likely.
