A room for where people can go if they have any form of disability, anxiety or any other medical issues.
The idea of the room would be a place where people can go if they feel overwhelmed, nervous or if they need quiet time or space to relax.
The room can also be used as a safe place if students feel that they need to go somewhere where it is quiet, where there are no crowds etc.


A sensory room for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or anxiety
