Every Sensory Experience Counts!

By Tetyana Varenychenko | Project Leader

Dear our Donors,

We appreciate your generocity, and we would like to say you Thank You again and again. Children with autism spectrum disorder or social communication difficulties can experience the world quite differently than others.  For example, a typical child may enjoy the flashy lights and sounds of an amusement park. Going to the local carnival on a warm spring night and spending the night riding amusements, enjoying carnival games, cotton candy, loud music and experiencing the overall excitement that comes with a carnival is a great childhood experience. That carnival was a multi-sensory experience.  Now a take a child with autism spectrum disorder and that childhood may experience the same carnival in completely different way. The experience can be quite overwhelming resulting in fear, agitation or even seizures. The point being children need to be stimulated in order to learn yet also feel calm, safe and relaxed.  

A sensory room has special lighting, calm music, bubbles, various tactile toys and furniture to stimulate the mind. The experience relaxes the child and yet allows the child to have a multi-sensory experience, much like the child who went to the carnival.  The sensory room is created with two goals in mind: to promote intellectual activity and relaxation.

Penndco children deserve an environment that is conducive to learning.  While the traditional classroom may benefit one child, another child may benefit from a sensory room where varying lights and textures gently stimulate the brain allowing the child to reenter the traditional classroom, relaxed and ready to learn.

Recent statistics in Pennsylvania show that 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. With statistics this staggering the need for innovative therapies to bring about the best outcomes is dire. We continue to ask our Best Donors to support us with providing our valuable services for children and their families. Every Penny Counts!
