DPAO Show To Benefit Room That Helps Developmentally Disabled
An interactive room that's helping people with developmental disabilities needs help.
The Snoezelen Room at Watertown's Disabled Persons Action Organization is filled with colorful lights and music.
Items in the room prevent aggressive behavior and help people with a disability relax. People who are part of DPAO programs can use the room for 30 minute sessions.
"It enhances everyone's life, not just the individual that comes here, but also their parents. It seems as though our individuals all day long they have to do this or they have to do that. This is room where they can do what they want to do," said Terri Fulmer, DPAO respite coordinator.
The room needs new items including a new projector.
Proceeds from the DPAO's spring show "Sinatra and Friends" will help update the room. That show will be be May 17 at the Dulles State Office Building in Watertown.
