Welcome to our Sensory Room Blog

Welcome the new blog from the Sensory Co-ordinator at High Rise

How do we create a space that is truly inclusive and welcoming for everyone, that is fun, but also helps people to develop and engage their senses as well as empower and educate people? That was the question we asked when developing our innovative new sensory and quiet rooms in High Rise – and it is the question that motivates us to bring you the best experiences and to support you throughout your sensory journey.

My name is Lauren, I am the Sensory Co-ordinator at High Rise. I’m going to be using this new blog to discuss all things sensory, to share my experience to help you better understand sensory processing issues, to provide tips to incorporate into everyday life and to provide awareness and knowledge.

About the Sensory Room at High Rise

I’m going to be spending a lot of time in the Sensory Room at High Rise (which I am so excited about), time engaging with you and others visiting the centre, and that is important because this room isn’t just a ‘playroom’ with a few sensory pieces of equipment added in. It’s much more than that – it’s a space where, with my support, you can be involved directly in exploring, investigating and stimulating your child or the person you care for. It’s a place for families, groups, carers, and individuals to enjoy and interact in together. We can plan programmes of activity and develop a truly personalised experience for you.

What is sensory play?

Over the past couple of weeks, I have spoken with a lot of our guests about the benefits of sensory play. This may be a term you have heard before, you may even have been to ‘baby sensory’ or at least know someone who has – but what I have realised is that many of you are still asking me - what exactly is it?
