Sensory Room official hand-over – 16 March 2018
Fulton School for the Deaf celebrated the official opening of their new Sensory Room on 16 March 2018 amongst staff, sponsors and learners.
A designated sensory room area has long been a dream of the management of the school. The benefits of sensory play are increased emotional, language and cognitive development. The specific needs of each learner using the area are taken into account and forms part of a holistic educational programme.
The Sensory room is equipped with a range of stimuli such as lights and soft play toys to help the Foundation Phase learners develop and engage their senses through sensory processing and sensory integration. The new facility also includes a Sensory Garden featuring a sand pit, a variety of plants and textured outdoor elements to interact with.
All of this was made possible by our generous sponsors GUD Holdings, MProjects and Highbury Foundation Phase learners.
