Why a Sensory Space?
Reactions to sensory stimuli often play a direct role in the behavior of individuals. Some individuals require a lot of sensory input in order for their bodies, and therefore behavior, to remain calm. Other individuals hardly require any at all. Either way, having multi-sensory input brought into an individual’s day can often help to maintain a level of emotional regulation and, therefore, can also help individuals more easily learn or achieve things.
Oxford dictionary defines sensory as “relating to sensation or the physical senses; transmitted or perceived by the senses.”
