A multi-sensory room is a stimulating environment aimed at developing coordination, motor skills, colour recognition, communication and sensory skills for children and adults with sensory impairments. 
It enables parents and/or children to relax and meditate in a calming, safe environment. 
It stimulates sensory understanding and general development, and regular use of a sensory room can help those with hidden impairments gain confidence to explore their surroundings. 
It can be used for all ages from babies to the elderly. 
The facilities can be used both passively and interactively to: 
Calm overactive behaviours 
Relax and bond with children / parents / carers 
Empower children to learn to share and socialise with other children in a calm, relaxing setting 
Engage or stimulate the senses to learn 
Control new movements or recover / re-learn / rehabilitate
