The interactive suite
The equipment in the interactive suite allows the room to be multi-functional, and be used for various activities from a calm environment to a more interactive environment which will encourage the use of the main senses as well as fine gross motor skills and allows the room to become an interesting learning environment. Projectors allow children to interact with various programmes, games, musical instruments using their hands, feet, and any part of their body which is a fantastic learning tool for children with limited movement, hearing impairment, vision loss, and children with learning disabilities. This room has a hoist to allow children full access to the equipment.
