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.

Our home-made Snoezelen Bathroom (By Lenise from Israel)
I work in a school for multiple handicapped children twice a week. As all schools, there are different children with very different levels, both physical and cognitive. We have decided to build a Snoezelen for the children in the future, but meanwhile we had to come up with a good idea, which was cheap and quick and easy to make!
This article outlines the development of the Bloorview MacMillan Children's Centre Snoezelen Pool program. It will also discuss the ongoing challenge to make this contribution sustainable.
