  • University of Bath opens autism summer school

    A summer school is due to open at the University of Bath to attract autistic students into higher education.

    Issues which may put off prospective students will be covered such as stress and anxiety and how to build social skills while living away from home.

    Autistic students will be given a taste of student life over the two days at the University of Bath Autistic students will be given a taste of student life over the two days at the University of Bath

    Dr Mark Brosnan said: "It can be very anxiety-inducing this transition of being at home in a structured environment to going to university."

    Thirty places will be available at the summer school which opens in September.

    "We are particularly targeting those who are thinking of going to university so we are talking about the higher-functioning end of the spectrum," said Dr Brosnan, who is running the course.

    "There are some very specific needs there - they can be extremely academically gifted and would do extraordinarily well on the academic side but may need additional support on the social side," he added.

    The two-day course will be free to those who have been diagnosed with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

    Dr Brosnan hopes to expand the summer school and hold it every year, if funding can be secured.

  • Sensory Rooms environments by Experia

    Sensory rooms are used to create therapeutic environments for both children and adults with sensory related disorders. However, there is benefit to be had by anyone who spends time in one of these rooms, regardless of their sensory capabilities.

    The rooms make use of various sensory products that encourage one to use their senses through the use of different colours, scents, sounds and textures. These help to develop skills such as cause and effect, hand eye coordination and shape recognition.

    Here are some of the different types of sensory room environments that can be created:

    Relaxation Room

    These rooms are ultimately designed to create a calm and soothing atmosphere and are most beneficial to individuals who constantly feel agitated or upset.

    Dark Rooms

    Dark rooms tend to be targeted mostly at individuals with visual impairments. The use of bright fluorescent colours against dark ones is therefore a common feature in this type of room, which aims to provide visually stimulation.

    Sensory Pool

    Wet areas can also be transformed into sensory environments and can be built around pools, Jacuzzis or bathrooms. Combining the use of lighting with sounds and other stimulating floating devices with water creates a fun learning experience for users to easily swim, float and move around in.

    Soft Play Rooms

    Soft play rooms are perfect for children as they offer a safe environment for them to let off steam. Soft play equipment is mostly bright in colour with a strong, durable construction that is also quick and easy to clean after use.

    Sensory Gardens

    Outdoor sensory environments incorporate various scented plants and colourful flower beds with the sounds of insects and birds. This creates a learning environment inspired by nature with the added benefit of other specially designed interactive features.

    All these sensory rooms and environments are ideal for encouraging individuals to explore and improve on their confidence and self esteem.

    Experia offer some of the finest sensory rooms in the UK. They can design a room to suit the specific needs of your patients or clients and will also provide a free demonstration and room design. In addition Experia can manufacture and install all your sensory equipment and are dedicated to offering comprehensive customer care support and training packages to those who are relatively new to the world of sensory products.

  • Bubble Tube LED Technology by Experia

    Bubble Tube

    A bubble tube will naturally form the focal point of any room. They have the distinct ability to effectively draw the attention and interest of those around them with their use of eye catching colours and moving bubbles.

    IRiS1-1024x681 Experia Iris Bubble Tube

    The bubble tube works by pumping water inside of it which is then blown up by air, causing bubbles to rise and shimmer in the colourful lights. Some tubes give their user the ability to control their colour changes through the use of buttons, whilst others are constructed with a mirror for an added visual effect, or attached to a plinth for the user to sit on and marvel at their vibrancy close up.

    The combination of colours and bubbles exudes a relaxing effect that is both soothing and visually stimulating, with soft, subtle vibrations and the sound of bubbles that naturally draws one to reach out and touch it.

    These features have been proven to be beneficial to individuals with various sensory processing disorders as they encourage therapeutic reactions and the development of communications skills. The tubes can be safely used in sensory environments such as multi sensory rooms, calming rooms and dark rooms.

    LED Bubble Tube

    The latest bubble tube LED technology will ensure that your tube is always shining bright. Unlike other light bulbs, LEDS never need changing and even if they’re never turned off, will still last you for many, many years.

    The bubble tubes come in various sizes including a very large and huggable 200mm. Each one boasts its own unique selection of features, from stylishly curved bases to clear domed lids which allow the brightly coloured light to shine onto the ceiling above for an added visual effect.

    Bubble tubes do not require a lot of maintenance; however there are a range of supplies and accessories that can be used to ensure you and your sensory environment always get the most out your tube.

    Experia offer some of the finest sensory room equipment in the UK including bubble tubes. They have a wide selection of tubes available and can also manufacture and install all your sensory equipment. In addition they offer comprehensive customer care support and training packages to those who are relatively new to the world of sensory products. Visit their website today for more information on their range of equipment.
