Warner Bros. World™ Abu Dhabi has introduced its first Sensory Nook. The unit, which is the first to be provided within a theme park in the region, has been designed to offer children on the autism spectrum with a safe and calm space accustomed to their needs and wellbeing inside a crowded area.
The sensory unit is equipped with the latest sensory technology and aims to support children who are on the spectrum’s treatment and rehabilitation.
The Sensory Nook includes:
LED color spectrum lighting
soothing UV lights
Bluetooth sounds and enhanced fiber optic tails to ensure optimal relaxation and calmness for the child.
The Nook also features translucent curtains and a user-friendly application that can be integrated to control the ambiance of the room and adapt to the child’s preferences.
He then added: “Zayed Higher Organization has an ambitious plan to launch six sensory units across retail venues and vital destinations in Abu Dhabi. We are working with the Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority to ensure children of determination are provided with the right support be it at malls, public areas or entertainment venues. Our efforts are in line with the vision of Abu Dhabi to offer the best services possible and adopt new technologies to ensure the active involvement of children in the community across all sectors and interests.”
To access the Sensory Nook, you are advised to speak with Guest Services at the entrance of Warner Bros. World™ Abu Dhabi. The unit can accommodate one child at a time under the supervision of their legal guardian or parent.
