We are excited to share a great article from The Center for Health Design, discussing the Sensory Arts Garden: An Inclusive Space for Discovery and Enrichment
The Sensory Arts Garden at The Els Center of Excellence is purposely designed for individuals with autism. Through interact on with plants and materials that engage the senses – sight, smell, touch, taste, sound – and also movement, the garden provides a much-needed balance of stimulating and calming sensory experiences. The garden addresses the challenge of creating a nurturing sensory environment for individuals with autism to enhance their capacity to successfully work, play, socialize and learn.
