Holy Angels’ SNOEZELEN Multi-Sensory Environment is a relaxing space that helps reduce agitation and anxiety by engaging clients in activities that utilize light, sound, smell, and texture. SNOEZELEN offers individuals with profound disabilities the opportunity to exercise choice through action, stimulate reactions and encourage communication.
SNOEZELEN offers hope for non-communicative individuals with autism, traumatic brain injury, and dementia and has been known to prevent steady and rapid declines in communication and sensory perceptions in children with autism.
In addition to having a dedicated SNOEZELEN room located in the Autism Center, we also have a mobile SNOEZELEN unit in Madonna Hall.
SNOEZELEN activities are coordinated by our occupational therapist. Clients are offered time in the SNOEZELEN Multi-Sensory Environment based on individual need and choice.
