About Sensory Lane
We have a heart to care for those who are always caring.
We understand that caring for a child with additional needs can be challenging. As the primary carer, you may also need care, assistance and the occasional time out. When you come to Sensory Lane, our heart is that you will experience a space where you feel value and support. We equip the professional to do what they do best by providing therapy sessions , all while you can treat yourself to some quality time at our adjoining cafe, The Ninth Ave.
Our heart is that into the future, Sensory Lane will be open for families and the community to enjoy together.
What are multi-sensory rooms?
People with additional needs are very aware of their surroundings. Sounds and sights can be both triggering and overwhelming, resulting in anxiety and negative reactions that are traumatic for both the person and their family.
For many multi-sensory rooms can be healing, calming and positively stimulating.
Who can benefit from Sensory Lane?
Sensory Lane is for everyone, there are no restrictions in terms of age or ability. Multi-sensory rooms have been found to be beneficial for those with disabilities and additional needs including those with emotional and behavioural difficulties or mental health problems or disorders.
Multi-sensory room environments transcend populations with their extraordinary flexibility and wide application to all needs.
