New Sensory Trailer in Toms River

05/17/2022 11:10 AM | Kathleen Avitt (Administrator)

The Toms River Mayor’s Advisory Council on Developmental Disabilities has unveiled a sensory trailer to be used as a quiet space and decompression area for people who may become overstimulated due to ADHD or other conditions.

The trailer will be brought to different events in Toms River to be used by people who can use a quiet, sensory-friendly area for a period of time before rejoining the event.

In the past, families may have had to leave an event or avoid going to one altogether. Now, they have a space that encourages inclusion.

The fundraising for the sensory trailer was single-handedly led by committee member Tracey Nardini Fournier.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the trailer is expected to be announced soon.
