Jessica Hannan, from NOFASD was the OT clinical consultant at the launch of the Calm Room at Westfield Woden (ACT). Designed to be a safe place for individuals living with sensory processing difficulties to go to when they are shopping. Many families reporting that  the overloading sensory environment of a shopping centre can impact on parents, carers and families ability to complete this activity of daily living.  Westfield Woden decided to give them some independence back. It is designed to be used for individuals of all ages who find the shopping environment difficult to manage. Sensory processing difficulties don't just occur with Autism Spectrum Disorder but are also a co-morbidity of many other disorders such as ADHD, FASD, trauma, anxiety and PTSD.
