What Is a Sensory Panel?
A sensory panelencourages tactile, auditory, and visual sensory experiences. You can design sensory panels into various patterns like a maze, walkway or traditional playstructure. The multiple configurations allow children to interact with other kids, while parents or caregivers can observe from a distance.
Everyone Can Explore Their Sense of Fun with Sensory Play Panels
Designed by a child development expert, the Miracle® Recreation Sensory Panels combine the challenge of a traditional maze with imaginative play that enriches and thrills the senses. Children and adults of all ages and abilities, including those with sensory disabilities, can explore the distinctive textures, shapes and translucent colors of these reconfigurable panels by look and by feel, as a group or individually in their own, unique way. Those easily overstimulated by noise or activity can also find comfort in cozy, quiet spaces located throughout the maze.
