Hi Sweetgiz, we have two Autistic children, and converted a bedroom in our house to a sensor room. We think they are great. We tried to model the room on the one they have at their school but that was way too expensive so we did what SusieL66 sugested and used places like Argos and Ebay, and basically did the best we could with the money we had. For us they are a great place to calm the children down. My advice would be try to visit one in your local area, and if your daughter likes it, take it from there.

Just wanted to say, unfortunately I know that Cerebra have run out of money for funding at the moment.Confused

Yes i seen that on another post, but by the time you get the form, references, and pick what would be needed, it could've started again, or you can go onto there waiting list.

Cerebra is income related but it says,

If your gross household income exceeds £60,000 (not including benefits) it is unlikely that we will be able to help, unless very full details as to why we should consider your application are provided.
