The ability to recognize and manage our emotional responses is what we call emotional intelligence. Emotional development begins from the moment we are born, perhaps even in-utero, and continues throughout our lives. For those with cognitive delays, neurological challenges, Autism, Asperger's, Sensory Processing Disorder and those who have suffered abuse, emotional development can be delayed or under-developed. The inability, yet need, to respond appropriately can be quite stressful for such individuals.A calming sensory environment filled with soft sounds, sights and textures can provide a perfect setting for a child to freely express and explore their emotions without fear of criticism. An immersive environment whereby you can recreate real-life scenarios can be used teach users about emotions and the social interaction that is so intrinsically intertwined with the cultural understanding of emotional states. Regular attendance in a sensory room can have a profound effect on those with emotional development delays and this will then transfer to their day-to-day interactions.
