    Hi! This site has been incredibly helpful, thank you for collating all of this important information. I am curious if you have come across the use of sensory rooms with people that have experienced a TBI. I am currently working in a Rehabilitation service for people with ABI’s and have seen the benefits of using a sensory room with children and can see that there would be benefits to using it with adults also. Currently the struggle for me is finding evidence of people using one successfully or not successfully! Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!!
