Charlotte's Amazing Multi-Sensory Room
CHARLOTTE,NC--Charlotte children with disabilities have a new place to help strengthen their brains.
Mayor Foxx helped open Charlotte’s Easter Seals United Cerebral Palsy Children’s Center known as Multi Sensory Environment Room, on Marsh Road near Southend Thursday.
The room was designed to help disabled children strengthen their brains by using sights, sounds and feelings to stimulate growth.
The room is the first of it's kind on the East Coast and functions by using fiber optic lighting that alternates colors and brightness. Other objects like bubbles, mirrors, all white furniture and even water beds are used to stimulate brain development like some kind of psychedelic therapy room.
Officials say they have seen it make a positive impact in children's recovery and the overall effect is soothing to the young patients.
