Multi Sensory Room Project - Autism

Here is a video of how I designed and built a sensory room for people with autism, learning difficulties and mental health issues. If anyone would like any advice feel free to contact me. I'm not a professional designer i'm just passionate about being a support worker and wanted to help by creating a sensory space which can help with sensory integration, fine motor skills, hyper and hypo sensitivities through sensory stimuli, reduce challenging behaviour and provide a relaxing area for people to use.

Sensa-Calm Creates Calming Blankets for Special Needs Customers

Sensa-Calm is also listed in our highly curated, comparitive weighted blanket list , so we have more detailed information:

Sensa-Calm started by a grandmother of a child with Autism. She has now built the company into giving work to many contracted seamstresses around Chattanooga, TN. Each blanket is made to order from hundreds of fabrics and blessed and cared for with the thoughts of the recipient in mind.

Using the comparison size of** 38" x 60" and 10 lbs of fill, the base price is $170 And note that each handmade blanket takes **10-14 days to construct before being shipped.

Extras include

  • snaps ($4.00)
  • soft minky fleece material in 18 colors as the underneath material that touches the body while sleeping ($20)
  • matching pillow case ($15)
  • Blanket material

All of the hundreds of blanket materials and colors are the same price. Categories of material include:

  • children and youth patterns
  • adult patterns
  • gallery fabrics (minky backs not available)
  • Supreme Solids
  • The Vastly Better "Medical" weighted blanket using Eco­Friendly PUL fabric by Eco­PULTM

Unlike the typical vinyl institutional weighted blankets, Sensa-Calm makes a gorgeous waterproof weighted blanket *that's equally great news hospitals, clinics, and schools as it is for users who have issues with incontinence, spilling, gripping, or just being a bit clutzy with liquids in bed. *The Eco Friendly PUL fabric doesn’t absorb liquid, you can wipe it off with a wet cloth, you can toss it in the wash and wash it in hot water in a commercial or home laundry, it resists abrasion, it’s fire retardant, and antimicrobial. All that combined gives you exactly what you would expect from a waterproof weighted blanket! The most important characteristic of Eco­PULTM is that it forms a waterproof barrier, while still being** breathable**. In this context, breathable does not mean that you can hold the fabric over your face and breathe through it. It means that the fabric releases heat and water vapor. This keeps the wearer comfortable. Our PUL fabric has a soft hand, making it quiet ­ never stiff or crackly.

  • PUL fabric by Eco­PULTM starts with lightweight polyester interlock (knit) fabric. The polyester fabric is paired with TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), a thin stretchy plastic film. These two components are bonded together into a single fabric using a combination of heat, pressure, and adhesive.
  • PUL fabric by Eco­PULTM is made with a “green” adhesive that is solvent­free, environmentally friendly, and releases no volatile organics. Some people have called this newer type of PUL “TPU.”
  • Eco­PULTM is made in the USA. 73% polyester 27% polyurethane. 153 gsm.
  • It is more costly for this, however, running about $249 for only the 10 lb medium size we've been comparing.

Another good news option though is that if you already have a weighted blanket, you can get a** duvet cover that's waterproof for an adult bed for $130.**

How they are constructed

  • The material is cut to size which includes: small, medium, large, full size bed or queen size bed
  • They are market and sewn into pockets in traditional quilting fashion
  • Each pocket is filled with equal amounts of a pre-measured portion of plastic pellets based on the total weight of the blanket surrounded by polyfill to finish the quilted look and feel
  • They are sewn closed or made with snaps to be able to wash separately
  • All of the materials are machine washable, including the waterproof version.

Uniquely available: Weighted Wraps

The perfect size to wrap around your shoulders or put around your neck like a scarf. A weighted wrap can be doubled and put on the lap as a lap pad. It also makes a perfect size lap blanket when laid across the lap. A wrap does not need to weigh as much as a blanket because the weight is concentrated into a smaller area. Because of size limitations, they do not contain polyfill, only poly-pellets. The smaller size makes it the perfect portable item for in the car, doctors appointments, school, etc. Everyone LOVES this item. Weighted wraps are popular with kids and the elderly. They can even be used as a stroller/car seat blanket for the very little ones.

Dimensions are (12” x 36”) for a 3lb Wrap for $39.95 and (18” x 36”) for a 5lb Wrap for 49.95 (add $20 to get in the eco-friendly waterproof materials)

A weighted lap pad is a portable size for school, the car, or even work. A lap pad helps soothe anxiety and the wiggles. Our lap pads are approximately 12″ x 18″ and weigh 2lbs for $29.95 in any material and $49.95 in the waterproof.

Also available

  • Weighted belts, vests and snakes
  • Chewies
  • Bean Bag Fidgets
  • Sensory Hand Muffs that give hands lots to do
  • Vibrating plush pillows
  • Safety gear including bracelets and a "find my child" remote
  • (They can also be bought on Amazon- though that may deflect from the money that goes to support the community....)
