The Multi-Sensory experience provides individuals with unique sensory integration opportunities to facilitate communication and further independence in a safe and controlled environment.
Individuals with disabilities may experience sensory difficulties of varying types and levels of severity, including limited vision or hearing, limited motor and muscle strength, and difficulty processing sensory information, causing hyper- or hypo-sensitivity to external stimuli.
Variety’s Multi-Sensory room is designed to support individuals with learning, development and engaging their senses at their own pace. Through the use of various sensory-based tools, such as lighting, colors, sounds and vibration and tactile objects, the room offers actively encourages individual expression, developmental growth, self-awareness and is a unique opportunity for participants to explore.
Newly revamped with collaboration of TFH Canada, our Multi-Sensory room is back and better than ever – available to all members and participants.
Variety Village is a national leader for inclusion and accessibility and strives to provide the best possible programming for individuals of all ages and abilities. The needs and interest of our programs are enhanced through the use of our new and improved Multi-Sensory room. This would not be possible without TFH Canada for their design, installation, and training provided to Variety staff for sensory programming equipment needs.
