Digicel lifts ‘Sun’ Centre


Share post:

DIGICEL Business has enhanced the learning experience of students of the Sunshine Early Stimulation Centre and the John Payne School for Exceptional Children by outfitting a fully integrated multi-sensory room to the establishment.
The new room was developed for students who require an intense form of support in order to master self-regulation as they are highly under or over-responsive to their sensory environment.
Co-director of the school, Cheryl Rock, explained that the students are unable to effectively and successfully integrate and/or modulate their sensory experiences.
“In some cases they may have emotional responses that are not reflective of their sensory experience. For example, becoming very upset for an extended period of time when there is a sudden loud noise.”
“The primary aim of the multi-sensory building is to achieve calm, alert states within the children which will in turn support the development of their interest in the world, their ability to engage with others and enhance their social and emotional development,” she said.
Rock, in thanking Digicel Business for its assistance said: “The calming sensory room has already become an integral part of the school’s programme.
“It is through Digicel’s support that we are able to continue developing programmes and rooms to meet our students’ needs and we want to sincerely thank Digicel for its support in this worthwhile venture.”
Digicel Business’ Martin Keogh said the company was more than happy to assist.
“Now that the room is completed and we can actually see the faces and reactions of the children during their sessions in the room, we are confident that this project will go a long way in enhancing the education process at the school.” (PR)
