Sensory Room

Sensory Room

The Arc of Fayette County was awarded a grant which enabled us to create a sensory room for the program participants.  

The Sensory Room serves as a quiet, safe, and respectful place of retreat that is much more supportive than rooms for seclusion that deprive the senses and invite disorientation. In the Sensory Room sensory supplies and activities are available to help program participants calm down and avert crisis.

  • While every individual is unique and has their own preferences, there are some general guidelines to follow when interacting comfortably and respectfully with people with disabilities.

  • “An attitude of gratitude creates blessings. Help yourself by helping others.”

  • “As the purse is emptied the heart is filled.”

  • “Charity begins at home but should not end there.”

  • “Charity is a supreme virtue, and the great channel through which the mercy of God is passed on to mankind. It is the virtue that unites men and inspires their noblest efforts.”

  • “Difficult things we do quickly. The impossible takes a little longer.”

  • “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

  • “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.”
