People with autism struggle to integrate their senses and many of their behaviours represent their attempt to compensate for the sensory “muddle” in which they live. At times input may be overwhelming and they experience overload and meltdown. This experience is described very well by Carly Fleishmann (see inspiration – videos page)

Flooring


When Josh has pain he jumps repeatedly. This is potentially harmful to his joints and so it has been an asset to have this specialized sports flooring.  It has the advantages of looking good whilst its customized cushioning reduces the impact on the skeletal system.

Taps


This Thermostatic bath tap fosters Joshua’s independence whilst ensuring his safety.

Air conditioner


Joshua finds heat hard to tolerate. This air conditioner unit was selected because its mode of operation is virtually silent. A noisy machine would challenge his auditory sensitivity.

Clock


We needed a clock with a silent sweep.

Sensory Room


The garden lends itself to provide safe seclusion for a shed which we plan to adapt to a sensory room.
