Calm Water Sensory Tent


Riverfront Fort Wayne’s Calm Water Sensory Tent is a mobile sensory room designed to mimic stationary sensory rooms used for individuals with autism, dementia, sensory processing disorders, and more. The individual’s experience in the tent is entirely customized and targets sensory seeking or avoidant needs. Adult supervision is required. Stays in the tent last 15 minutes and time slots are on a first come, first served basis during events. For questions, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Sensory Workshop Series

Take control of your sensory needs through crafts, discussions with sensory professionals and other resources. This spring we are offering one DIY craft that involves all 5 senses on the 2nd Friday of each month. The March project is a Sensory Pillow, which is customizable to anyone’s sensory, motor, or memory needs. April’s project is Floam, which has a unique and calming texture and is easy to make. In May, use your artistic abilities or just have fun while painting with Bubble Wrap. Sessions begin promptly at 6:10 p.m. The generosity of the AWS Foundation allows this program to be offered free to the public. Registration is required. Deadlines are 2 days prior to each workshop .
