A Snoezelen room is a specialized environment that supports individual treatment needs. This room features a blend of sights, sounds, textures and aromas that can be tailored for children with mental health issues, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), emotional dysregulation and/or developmental disabilities. Children may experience discovery and exploration to support treatment goals, enhance self-esteem and reduce their stresses, anxiety and fears.
The Snoezelen room is a multi- sensory experience. The room is filled with visual displays. Colourful objects can be touched along with orbiting images, lights and colours. Electronic devices with buttons and switches entice children to reach out and explore. There are gentle vibrations and massages that soothe the body and reduce stress or heightened feelings. The environment of the Snoezelen Room is filled with pleasant sounds and aromas that are subtly dispensed into the air.
CASA has Snoezelen Rooms located at two sites: Fort Road and CASA Centre.
Who It’s For
