Toms River Township
Did you know that 1 in 6 individuals have a sensory need that limits them from participating completely within their community? Individuals with invisible disabilities such as PTSD, Autism, Parkinson’s, Dementia, and Sensory Processing Disorders and their families often avoid public and community events out of fear of becoming overstimulated and overwhelmed. They may have difficulty managing the noise, lights, and crowds.
But we can help those with disabilities and their families enjoy community events such as street fairs and festivals! By adding a sensory room to community events, we can help Toms River to become a more inclusive township where all of our residents can benefit from social events within our community. A sensory room is a dedicated space that gives access to tools and equipment that can be used to help an individual de-escalate and self regulate so they can reenter the event feeling secure, confident and a valued member of the community!
The 'Toms River Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Developmental Disabilities' is raising money to purchase a mobile Sensory Activation Vehicle that will be used at public events throughout Toms River Township.
Your donation will help us bring better inclusion to this wonderful community!
