The National Autism Society of Malaysia Opens New Snoezelen Room in Gombak

The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) launched its new Snoezelen Room facility at its Gombak centre as part of its tools for assessments and interventions.

KUALA LUMPUR – The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) on 1 November 2018 has launched its new Snoezelen Room facility at its Gombak centre as part of its tools for assessments and interventions.

The Snoezelen Room is designed to deliver stimuli to various senses and it offers a relaxed atmosphere with pleasant surroundings, soothing sounds, captivating aromas, tactile experiences and interesting light effects for the user to self-regulate. The room provides a space where a variety of interventions can be tailored to meet a need (or needs) quickly and easily, whether it be therapeutic, educational, or focused on using sensory equipment to calm, soothe, or stimulate mental and physical effectiveness and are guaranteed to be safe.

Feilina Feisol, Chairman of NASOM said, “We are thrilled to expand our centre’s offering with the opening of our new Snoezelen Room in Gombak. We wish to extend our gratitude to Danajamin for assisting us to realise this facility in one of our centres. Through its Danajamin Mighty Run 2017 event, Danajamin has extended their support to NASOM by raising the Autism awareness to the greater public and subsequently channelled the public contribution to set up this Snoezelen Room. With this addition, we hope our students, teachers as well as the public will be able to benefit positively from this multi-sensory facility.”

Speaking at the launch, Mohamed Nazri Omar, Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director of Danajamin Nasional Berhad shared that “We see a lot of opportunities to help this community and we want to be part of its development and growth. We have always been supporting NASOM and championing autism awareness. Together with NASOM, we want to improve the quality of life for people with autism and their families and we hope to continue playing our role particularly in providing a conducive learning environment for autistic children.”

“Through this event, we hope to nurture a caring community amongst the public by providing better exposure and understanding on Autism Spectrum Disorder. Persons on the spectrum grow up, communicate, think, feel, behave, and respond to their surroundings differently. As a result, these persons are often misunderstood, misjudged, and sidelined.”

The facility in Gombak is accessible to students in the centre and members of the public aged 3-14 years old who has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. NASOM has 20 treatment centres nationwide, supported by 10 therapists and 150 specially trained teachers to manage and assist autistic children.

‘Danajamin Mighty Run’ is Danajamin Nasional Berhad’s annual Corporate Social Responsibility initiative to raise public awareness on Autism. Danajamin Mighty Run 2018 will be held on 24 November 2018 at Perdana Botanical Garden, Kuala Lumpur. To participate in this event, participants can register their entries at www.ticket2u.com.my until 10 November 2018.
