A multisensory environment (MSE) is an environment designed to stimulate the senses through light, sound, touch and smell. Essentially, it aims to create a feeling of safety, and to provide novel sensations, with stimulation under the user’s control.
Venture’s community day program has been awarded accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. CARF is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes quality rehabilitation services. Their standards of quality serve as guidelines in developing and offering programs or services to consumers. These standards are used to determine how well an organization is serving its consumers and how it can improve. Each year, the standards are reviewed and new ones are developed to keep pace with changing conditions and current consumer needs.
