Creating Meaningful Moments with the Multi-Sensory Environment

Members from the *International Snoezelen-MSE Association (ISNA-MSE), based in the Netherlands, will travel to Valparaiso University on May 9, 2023 to present an introduction to the relationship-building framework that supports experiential learning and therapeutic benefits of multi-sensory environments (MSE). This informational session will serve as a pre-conference for a multi-day ISNA-MSE International Conference being planned for this fall at Valparaiso University.

Join us in discovering how to facilitate multi-sensory spaces and how to create meaningful moments that provide exceptional support for individuals with various disabilities. Explore the history, psychology, physiology, and benefits of multi-sensory environments.

*ISNA-MSE provides global consultation and training, making connections throughout the world that expand awareness and best practices for mse applications and invitational engagement in mse processes. Visit to learn more.
