THE SENSORY SIDE OF NOOK PODS

Sensory Nooks are personal mobile sensory support pods. They have been designed by sensory specialists AmbiSpace ltd & Nook Wellness Pods to provide an easy affordable way to help people with special needs and disabilities survive everyday public places.

How they do this is by reducing sensory overload from the wider environment. They create a controllable capsule in which neurodiverse individuals can self regulate and function to the best of their individual ability.

Public places can become totally overwhelming for people with special needs, creating sensory overload, anxiety, personal crisis situations and ultimately meltdown.

These clever little mobile Nooks provide a safe space that avoids isolation and reduces challenging behaviour.

THE PRACTICAL SIDE OF SENSORY NOOK

Sensory Nook takes the wonderful holistic benefits of Nook Pods and adds a range of interactive and passive sensory modules for seamless integration.
They are highly supportive of neurodiversity and provide a calming sensory refuge for people of all ages with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
They are a flexible way to increase accessibility and inclusion in schools, care homes, sports arenas, libraries, diners, shopping malls, medical waiting rooms, leisure venues and most public places.
Sensory Nook is not only effective inclusive provision for
people with special needs but is an actively calming
system that supports the wellbeing of everyone.

“When you go to a music festival with three autistic children you do wonder if you will last more than ten minutes. Thanks to Sensory Nook being at Wonderfest we lasted two days!
All three of my children visited their area but my nearly seven year old daughter especially made them her safe place for the weekend.
On day two she had a meltdown and started running … she kept
running straight across the field and straight into one of the Sensory Nook’s! She laid down for around twenty minutes amongst the lights, no talking and managed to re-regulate herself. Normally in that
situation it would have been game over for us and home time – This allowed us to continue on for a while longer.
All schools should have one of these and I’m going to grovel with both of the special needs schools that my children attend and see if we can fundraise for one, now having witnessed how instantly helpful they are! Thank you Sensory Nook! It was an absolute godsend for us!”

“The Sensory Nooks are great spaces and work well for that time away from the classroom and others. Students have
really enjoyed the space to sit and talk, it has a safe and confidential feel”

“We are having more face to face appointments again and so the
Sensory Nook is often being used when children are waiting to be
seen or in between appointments as some children maybe waiting for
a procedure. The children use it as a distraction space and a bit
of entertainment!”
