This book is full of practical, easy to use multisensory assessment tools and intervention strategies to help foster a feeling of ease with the environment, open the person up to experiencing pleasure and happiness, and kick starts their desire to explore. The reader is offered a cornucopia of exciting multisensory stimulation ideas that can be applied to communication, play, leisure and recreation, therapy and education. Practical resources in this book also shows how to monitor and review applications to ensure they are being used in the most effective and enjoyable ways possible. Informed by an astute, up-to-date, comprehensive overview of research and theory, this book will appeal to primary stakeholders from a wide range of disciplines, including education, health and social care.
