Katherine Hirsch
Owner @Sensory-scapes
Kathy discovered Multi-Sensory Environments (MSE) while working as a Special Education Consultant for the Waterloo Region District School Board. While on a field trip to one of the first Snoezelen Rooms in Ontario, Kathy was amazed and intrigued by the immediate positive engagement her cognitively impaired students had with the sensory environment. Convinced her students would benefit from a Multi-Sensory room of their own, Kathy began researching sensory integration. She worked diligently to raise the funds, educate administration, design a room for her students and incorporate sensory interventions into their programs. The positive experiences in her first “school age” sensory room motivated her to bring the benefits of sensory stimulation to older users… seniors living in Long Term Care living with Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
