Description
Special Haven is a Non-Profit Corporation which will provide a multi-sensory environment for the benefit and development of children and adults with Special Needs. Multi-Sensory environments have been shown to help individuals with autism, brain injury, challenging behaviors, dementia, developmental disabilities, mental illness, palliative care, pre and post-surgery, PTSD and special education, some apparatus will have vibrational effects to include children and adults with hearing impairment and, of course, wellness.

The room will aim to maximize a person’s potential to focus and then initiate and react in a meaningful, productive way to situations, things, and people in their environment. A multi-sensory environment can be instrumental in changing behavior, increasing focus and attention and adding to the feelings of positive self-esteem and well-being, but most of all it will be an oasis of calm and a safe place to have fun.

General Information
Special Haven will provide a tactile experience through sound, aroma, touch and visual effects in many combinations and variations. It will also enable children with any degree of disability to change and influence their own environment in a positive way through technology.

The overactive can be calmed, the inactive become interested. The partially sighted can see the vivid moving colors. Those who are mobile can chase the slowly moving images. The whole room can change color by applying pressure to simple switches or pressure pads. Colors can move or change simply by making a noise, and for those with severe special needs the sensory room can be set to automatically change programs, giving a constantly changing and interesting environment.

Special Haven will fill an ever-growing need for the Special needs Community in Antioch and the surrounding towns.
