Sensory Programming

Sensory programming is usually developed for the lower functioning residents, those who cannot actively contribute to an activity. These residents are passive participants or observers of the activities programs. They need a special program that will stimulate their senses and their reaction to stimulation. They may have the ability to verbally respond or will respond slightly to the stimulation through eye contact, a facial expression or by squeezing a hand. Developing programs for the resident who needs to have some kind of sensory stimulation can be a challenge to many activity professionals.
