Devereux awarded $4,000 grant to create sensory room for youth with disabilities

Sensory room Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health was recently awarded a $4,000 grant to create a sensory room for youth with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences at Devereux Pennsylvania’s Children’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services (CIDDS) center.

The grant, from Macy’s, Inc., was used to purchase items including a bean bag sofa and chairs, yoga mats, massagers, music, fiber optic lights, and activity books for adolescent boys enrolled in a residential treatment program at Devereux Pennsylvania CIDDS.

Sensory rooms are designed to either calm or stimulate the senses of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other special needs through the use of special lighting, music and objects.
