What is the Hush?
The Hush room is used throughout the 24-hour day, providing a quiet space dedicated to stimulating, developing and relaxing the senses. Unlike a school classroom, where young people are usually expected to watch and listen to the teacher, the Hush is a sensory room which allows them the freedom and autonomy to explore the environment for themselves, in their own time, using all of their senses. It is a calming space providing a therapeutic environment for our young people that are experiencing emotional or behavioural challenges. It allows them to learn to manage their emotions in a controlled environment.
