Thesis
De snoezelruimte is een plaats waar de persoon met een beperking zich even kan terugtrekken. Hier is hij de baas. Hij beslist zelf wat hij wil doen, wanneer en voor hoelang. Bovendien is de omgeving aangepast zodat zijn beperking het plezier en ontspanning niet in de weg staat. Om de snoezelaar nog meer autonomie te geven en de snoezelervaring rijk...
