Human Senses in the Museum
Feeling highly uncomfortable may result in ‘stimming’ – behaviours such as rocking, swinging, hand flapping, repetition of some phrases or shouting. It’s important to be aware of it and make a calm, safe space or even an escape route available if necessary. Consider all of the main senses – where and how you can make adjustments in the museum to minimize the probability of over- and understimulation.
