Many children and adults with autism also experience Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) which means that they struggle to process incoming sensory inputs from their environment. Those diagnosed with SPD are more at risk of developing anxiety, depression, and aggression, as well as difficulty in developing motor skills. Occupational therapists tend to treat SPD by using sensory equipment such as lighting.
Studies have found that the various changing colours used in sensory lighting can have a positive effect on a person’s mood and attitude. Sensory lighting helps to create a safe environment in which those with autism can have their senses stimulated without being overloaded.
Here at UKS Mobility we stock a wide variety of sensory lighting products, including modular sensory pods, lighting projectors, and full sensory lighting kits for use in both schools and homes.
