Sensory rooms in Sheffield

A sensory room is a therapeutic space that is designed to stimulate the senses through a variety of sensory equipment. This can include coloured lights, lava lamps, sounds, or equipment like swings, squeeze toys or exercise balls.

Sensory rooms can have a calming effect on children with additional needs. They can provide a sanctuary for escaping sensory overload and can also be used as a therapeutic space for building skills like colour recognition or motor skills.

All of the venues listed here have parking, and all are wheelchair accessible.
