New Concepts for Living is raising funds to furnish our day program with a state-of-the-art Multi-Sensory Environment. Multi-Sensory Environments have been proven to have lasting significant benefits for the client. They create a calming experience for the user, contributing to cognitive development, lower blood pressure and stress levels. As a result, clients with behavioral tendencies experience a decrease in maladaptive behaviors and an improvement in focus, mood, communication, social skills and more.
The Multi-Sensory Environment allows the client to control their environment through touch and voice commands. The client can control the color of the lighting to their preference, toggle between music or ambient sounds, and experience aroma therapy and tactile stimulation with the push of a button. This provides the client with a better understanding of cause and effect relationships and promotes cognitive development in the individual.
The Multi-Sensory Environment will enhance our therapy services for the extraordinary individuals we serve. With the limited funding that we receive from the State, enhancements to our programs such as this are made possible through contributions from people like you. Please consider donating to this project to help us reach our goal and provide our clients with a Multi-Sensory Environment. We appreciate all assistance in our mission of enriching the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities. For more information regarding this or another NCFL project please contact us.
