Sensory Board Workshop

We are continuously humbled by the loving community surrounding Jill’s House. On February 12, Salamander Resort and Spa hosted a corporate retreat for Capital One employees. During this retreat, Mary Jennings, the Salamander’s artist-in-residence, led the group in creating sensory boards. Sensory boards help facilitate a person’s use of cognitive processes through interactive exploration, as they engage their senses. 

When using sensory boards, physical senses are engaged through different items with which they can interact. For example, Capital One designed their boards to incorporate doors, wheels, springs, mirrors, and more!

At the end of this workshop, Mary Jennings and Capital One generously donated these thoughtfully-crafted sensory boards to Jill’s House families. These boards will enable kids with intellectual disabilities to engage their senses, which is critical for brain development.

“For me it’s a win, win. I am able to facilitate an enjoyable activity for the corporate team while providing some awareness about the needs of those with Autism to light and building stronger community connections.” – Mary Jennings

The detail and time that went into making these sensory boards reminds our kids and families that they are exceedingly known, loved, and valued. Thank you all for loving them so well!
