Multisensorial & Life Skills Room
Multisensory Room
The students of Shema Kolainu - Hear Our Voices have been benefiting greatly from the introduction of our very own specially designed Snoezelen Room.
 
Snoezelen, or controlled multisensory environment (MSE), is a therapy for people with autism that consists of placing the person in a soothing and stimulating environment. These rooms are specially designed to deliver stimuli to various senses, using lighting effects, color, sounds, music and scents.
Our Snoezlen room has a variety of sensory experiences. There is musical hopscotch, which lights up and plays a sound according to which square the student lands on.
 
Students can experience therapeutic light sequences courtesy of the interactive LED spiral sensation panel. The pattern, color and speed of the lights can be adjusted by the students - teaching visual tracking and cause and effect associations.
 
Our students enjoy the "busy train" activity panel which hovers over the room. It reinforces gross and fine motor skills while providing visual and spatial stimulation.
 
The room glows with different projections from the solar projector or the laser stars projector, amplified by the mirror ball.
 
Students are relaxed by a full-body warming massage mat with an integrated fiber-optic light spray, a soft foam rocker or a vibro-music beanbag chair.
 
Research has shown that multisensory environments supply a wealth of benefits, often providing the student and teacher an opportunity to work on communication, enhance their understanding of each other, and build trust in their relationship.
Daily Living Skills Center

Parents so often tell us about their child's difficulties in participating in basic everyday activities.

 

Going to the grocery store, library and even daily housekeeping chores are activities that would change the lives of the families affected by autism.

 

Shema Kolainu's Daily Living Skills Center includes a mini supermarket, laundry center, kitchen, bedroom and gym.

 

We use this room for teaching our students, training their parents, and increasing independence and community awareness.

 

It is designed to help students master basic living skills and everyday activities by mimicking these events in a controlled setting.

 

At Shema Kolainu - Hear Our Voices, we strive to help out students reach their full potential for independence, productivity and inclusion in the community.

 

Our Daily Living Skills Center makes a positive difference in educating our children in becoming more independent and community wise.
