Building a sensory room

A sensory room stimulates the senses with lights and sounds It should be a dark, small room in a quiet part of the house.

We decided to build one to help our son and picked a large walk in closet in the basement. First the concrete floor had to be insulated to make it more inviting, so I used Amdry panels to add two inches of insulation. Next, we used foam tiles to create a colourful and warm floor, added various lights, a star projector, a gym mat, pillows and a cd player.

You can buy most of this stuff on amazon and the price is very reasonable, compared to ordering from the special needs catalog.
Here are some links to the things we bought off
