Interactive, sensory room for children with autism in Palestine

Causes: Education, Health
Location: Ramallah
After conducting a research we were able to conclude that there are many challenges related to the rehabilitation of autistic children. We in Palestine do suffer from the following: 1. Lack of awareness about such a disease. 2. The high cost of diagnosing and treatment 3. Lack of equipment and staff for helping the diagnosed children 4. The absence of statistics about the number of children with autism. The project will try to fix the previous problems and achieve the goals of the organization by providing the creation of modern methods of treatment through a distinctive program based on the belief that each child has a point of strength in his treatment. The rooms are designed to assist someone in organizing, calming, relaxing, and seeking out sensory information. The goal of a sensory room is to provide a safe place where someone who has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) can go when they need to either calm or stimulate their senses. They can be as varied as the people who use them. Sensory rooms provide a great variety of activities to help engage the senses.
