Snozelean rooms! Snozelean rooms are a great resource for parents to use for their child with special needs. The specific materials included in these rooms vary based on the site, however there are a wide variety of them in the GTA. These places are great for children who require sensory stimulation in order to relax. Children (and parents!) can explore the room through their sense of touch, smell, sound, taste and sight. Check out more information about Snozelean Rooms here and here. When children come into these rooms everything is under their control. They are able to choose how much sensory stimulation they get and what parts of the room to interact with.
