Controlled multisensory stimulation, or Snoezelen, is a therapeutic regime for people with severe mental disabilities. Such sensory integration therapies have been used in the therapy of patients with Autism, Asperger's syndrome and other developmental disorders since the 1970s. They were developed in the Netherlands and are particularly popular in Germany, involving exposure to soothing and/or stimulating light, color, scents and music in carefully controlled environment, sometimes called a Snoezelen room.

We have used the Snoezelen Room successfully in treating children with cerebral palsy, autism, Downs Syndrome, and hyperactivity.  It is also a wonderful therapy for trauma victims and people suffering from anxiety and mild depression.  We hope to extend the treatment to mothers suffering from post partum depression.

A unique center for children with learning disabilities aims to help them in many innovative ways

WHAT can parents do if they are concerned about their child's educational problems? In Haifa, they can look to Chi.L.D - the Haifa Center for Children with Learning Disabilities - where a team of dedicated professionals and volunteers provide vital educational and therapeutic services for children with learning disabilities.

Here we show you an innovative example of a Snoezelunit which is located at the back of school classroom. Children follow lessons in the front of the room. The School is located in Zwolle Holland.

For this publication special thanks to Raymond Koopman, who designed the Classroom and the Snoezelunits.

Dutch:

BAMB' le is een snoezelspeeltuin voor kleuters en verstandelijk gehandicapten. De speeltuin vertaalt de basisprincipes van de populaire binnenactiviteit 'snoezelen' naar een buitenactiviteit. Zo ontstaan een nieuwe soort van speeltoestellen, die de verschillen tussen mensen helpen overbruggen. Hier zie je enkele voorbeelden van de opbouw van een Snoezelspeeltuin

English:

BAMB'le is a Snoezelen playing ground designed for toddlers and children with a mental handicap. The playing-ground transfers the in-house snoezelenactivities towards an out-house activity. Because of this new playing equipment is created which can bridge the differences between people. Here you can see an example of a Snoezel playing ground.

Lights twinkle, seemingly suspended in air; constellations twirl on the ceiling; transparent tubes of swirling, multicolored bubbles softly gurgle. A string of feathers gently brushes your face, and the aroma of a flower-filled meadow fills the air as soft music echoes. You thought you were just stepping into a storage room. Instead, you've entered a magical place called a Snoezelen (Snüz-c-lin) room.
