Sensory Nooks are a mobile, plug and play solution to help neurodiverse people cope with challenging environments.

They create an encapsulated environment to positively influence mood, reduce challenging behavior & anxiety levels before reaching meltdown and in so doing prevent challenging behavior. The result of this is less exclusion and much greater opportunity to access experiences most people take for granted.

Sensory Nooks are a highly inclusive adaptable space particularly effective for neurodiversity including Autism, ADHD & Dyslexia, providing a calming refuge for social & emotional challenges. It is a practical way to reduce exclusion in the workspace, classroom and in public.

Sensory Nook’s mobile and open design allow for the user to not be removed from the environment, but instead improve socialization by remaining connected to their surroundings.

The EDspaces win adds to the extensive recognition Nook Wellness Pods has received this year for knowledge leadership and effectiveness in support of wellness and support for the neurodiverse, including approval by the IBBCES as a Certified Autism Resource.
