"Grow with sense(s) – Snoezelen Multisensory and Gymnasium Sensory Therapy"

The Snoezelen Multisensory Therapy is a service provided since 2008 that is not currently adequate for customers’ needs due to its location. There is a distance of roughly 13 kilometers between the Center for Occupational Activities (CAO) and the institution’s headquarters. For this reason, the CAO customers are those who take advantage of sessions in this privileged context. They go once per week to benefit from a session of just over 30 minutes. The objective of this proposition is to increase the number of customers who benefit from Snoezelen Multisensory Therapy, in addition to the number of weekly interventions, by providing transportation from the classroom in Faro to CAO. It is also intended to provide these spaces with the equipment that allows reaching specific objectives in order to attain the overall objective: achieving the full well-being of customers to improve their quality of life and performance.
