Little Video about Sensory Room for High Schoolers

video
The video doesn't really do the room justice, but this small room has vibrating beanbags, a range of visually-interesting lights and hand-held "toys," and many textured items to explore.  The Art Dept of the high school designed the interstellar murals and the teachers enhanced the concept by hanging planet-like decorations from the ceiling.  Even the windows to the hallway were painted with a jello-consistency mixture that alters the harsh light from the hall and makes it swirley.

The different classes have allotted times during the day when they regain their equilibrium in the sensory room.  Will feature different pieces of equipment down the road.
