Based on the scientific principles of sensory stimulation, our sensory DVD, “A Sense of Calm”, uses gentle moving images, light and soothing music to stimulate calming alpha brain waves, helping to filter out stress, frustration, anxiety and agitation in those who have been diagnosed with conditions that can cause such reactions.
Some of you may already know of “A Sense of Calm”,” which is being used by special needs schools to benefit a range of conditions including autism, ADHD
and children with profound and multiple learning and physical difficulties.
The sensory DVD, “A Sense of Calm” follows the same underlying principles of a calming, sensory room, only at a fraction of the cost. It works on any TV that is connected to a DVD player, or with a digital projector, projecting the images onto
a wall, so it can be used during a therapy session at school, or to help calm down a child who has become overexcited due to sensory overload.
It can, therefore, be used when and where it is most needed, when a child is in an elevated state of agitation, anxiety, or stress, as well as an aid to therapy.
The colours and the movement on the screen are naturally attractive for a child and once they are watching, the tempered movement and music helps to promote the calming alpha brain waves.
“A Sense of Calm” can also be used by parents at home to relax a child who has become over exited, anxious, or frustrated. It can also help parents cope with the stresses and strains of caring and promote quality time with those they care for.
The creators of this DVD have come together in a common cause. Each has experienced the frustration and anguish of a loved one struggling to cope with a debilitating condition that rules their lives.
Each DVD comes with a licence that allows the DVD to be played in patients’ homes, at schools, or any health or therapeutic environment.
“A Sense of Calm” is 60 minutes long and features 6 relaxing videos of approximately 10 minutes each. The images and music in each video flow seamlessly to the next, so it can be used by teachers, occupational therapists and carers for up to one hour of therapy, or in smaller segments for those who just need 10 minutes to relax to their favourite track.
