Sensory Friendly Saturdays

Snoezelen Room at Miami Children's Museum

The Snoezelen Room is a multi-sensory experience with incredible visuals presented in a reduced and comfortable lighting setting and is based on and was designed in collaboration with Beit Issie Shapiro, the global leader of research into Snoezelen therapy.  Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Environments are relaxing spaces that help reduce agitation and anxiety, but also engage and delight the user, stimulate reactions and encourage communication.  This space has been created specifically for children with autism, sensory processing disorders, global developmental delays and other special needs to enjoy with their families.
