Bonnie Finds Success in Every Sense!

Feb 08, 2017

Bonnie is an Entrust client who has autism. Bonnie has sensory needs, and had recently been feeling restless and anxious. The staff at Shack (where Bonnie lives) decided to take her to visit the multi-sensory room at the ACT Aquatic and Recreation Centre in Rundle Park.

We organized the trip with a few of Bonnie's friends, and used money we earned from collecting bottles and cans to pay the entrance fee. Bonnie spent about half hour in the multi-sensory room; she enjoyed the bubble tube, light panel, projector, fibre optic lights and motion lamps.

The trip to ACT was a great experience for Bonnie; she was relaxed and quiet there. In fact, Bonnie was so happy with her experience she is asking to visit the multi-sensory room again!
