Hi
I have 2 kids(4&2) and another one on the way. My hubby and I are setting up a soft play centre and would like to incorporate a sensory room for kids with special needs as there is really no facilities in our area where parents can come and socialise with their kids and talk to other parents experiencing the same. However, we need a bit of advice as to what equipment would be beneficial. Would parents prefer the sensory room to be totally separate from the main play area or would it be best to have the room open so that parents with more than one child can then keep an eye on their other children? Any advice would be gratefully received! Thanks.

Agree with Riven - very expensive. SHould be separate and sound proof I would reckon. Needs to be soft padded including walls. Hoists etc - very expensive. Not sure how you'd make your money back tbh.

Not sound proofed as in properly but shouldnt be able to hear outside iyswim. You'd also need to think about how many you'd have in there at one time and how you would ensure your expensive equipment wouldnt be damaged and would be used properly.
