About the conference:

Snoezelen – MSE is one of the most popular modern concepts in the area of education, social works and health care both in the Czech Republic and in foreign countries. Snoezelen as a sensomotoric concept with psychologically – educational interventions is an effective conception solution for supportive measures for groups of all ages suffering various forms of health disorders. The method uses specially designed procedures applying sensory stimulations on people with health disorders in specially adjusted place, and therefore it can “introduce the world” in an understandable, structured and magical form that is both developing and without pressure.

The founder of this concept is Ad Verheul, who originally developed this concept for children with severe form of disability in 1970s. Nowadays Snoezelen Concept is used all over the world by experts such as rehabilitation doctors, special educationists, psychologists, psychiatrists, neuroscientists, ergo therapists and many others. Snoezelen experts are organised in a world organisation – International Snoezelen Association Multi-Sensory Environment (ISNA-MSE), from which international lecturers with local terms of reference are chosen to share the Snoezelen – MSE concept in their countries under the flag of ISNA – MSE organisation. They also educate experts from all supporting professions and they are warrantors of the concept and methods for Snoezelen – MSE environment.

Every year a worldwide congress is held in different continents where those experts can meet and introduce their work to both experts and public. We are honoured that in October 2019 the worldwide Soezelen – MSE congress will be held in the Czech Republic in one of the most beautiful cities in the world – Prague. I would like to invite you to this extraordinary event and I am looking forward to seeing you. Czech and Slovak Snoezelen experts have plenty to show you.
