Arc of Washington-Holmes Counties, Inc. “state-of-the-art” sensory room.
LABOR OF LOVE!
A volunteer group comprising retired and former staff members from The Arc of Florida and Arc WH maintenance staff made a long-awaited dream a reality. It has been a dream of the Arc Washington-Holmes Counties to create a multi-sensory room and to offer a new sensory-centered curriculum for the individuals we serve. The area, located at the back of the Adult Day Training Center, features individual as well as group activities and learning modules for individuals experiencing sensory processing deficits. The room serves persons with sensory over-responsiveness, sensory under-responsiveness, and individuals with sensory-seeking behaviors.
We are forever grateful to those who willingly put their heart and soul into this project. We want to thank the Washington County School teachers who heard about this project and “kicked in” many appropriate sensory games, fidgets, and activity items. These donations and support from community members have allowed Arc WH to begin a truly innovative and impactful program in the local community.
