My personalised sensory bedroom
Hi, I am Amy. I have autism. and I love sensory rooms. I go to the sensory room at pepenbury but only once a fortnight for half hour. I dont get to go in there as often as I want because other people need to use it too.
One day I went into my friends bedroom and I said
"your room looks like a sensory room"
her room has christmas lights, a light up feather boa across her ceiling, a bubble light projector, and a twirly rod hanging from her ceiling.
I thought to myself
"if she can do it, so should I if i really want to, what a good idea!"
So one day I decided to personalise my own sensory room. I got myself a projector that makes patterns on the ceiling but it gets very warm so I keep it on for up to an hour. A few weeks later I got myself a bubble tube which changes colour and also makes a patterns on the ceiling. I have also done some sequin art and put it up on my walls and it sparkles in my room when the sensory lights are on. I have a sequin vest that i put over my mirror and some sequin stars i have on my ceiling. When people come into my room, they comment on how relaxing it is.
when i get distressed or upset, i go to my sensory bedroom and switch the bubble tube on and watch it. It always makes me feel so much better, it really works.
my favorite colour is deep blue, because i find it fun and relaxing. The best colour for a sensory room.
I am really happy with my sensory bedroom, and I love personalising my own room.
