Thanks to a $25,000. grant from Ronald McDonald Children's Charities of Canada, and in partnership SD&G Developmental Services, our chapter was able to equip the area's first Snoezelen Room.
If you are a member of Autism Ontario Upper Canada Chapter, or a client of SD&G Developmental Services, you have access to this great resource for both children and adults.
Free facilitator training to parents, guardians and support workers is available. The accompanying adult must be trained as a facilitator before the room can be used.
Purpose of Snoezelen:
Leisure for the client
Relaxation and calming effects
Provides a sense of control of environment
Provides an opportunity for choice
Encourages exploratoin and discovery
Time for individual attention
Provides a medium to enhance the development of relationships
