A Special Room Fills Special Needs at Wayland-Cohocton

An article posted on the Livingston County News of Geneseo NY, about the debut of the new MSE for Wayland-Cohocton Central School. The article mentions Linda Messbauer, who served as chief consultant and designer of the Multi-Sensory Environment.

A brief excerpt:

“A significant step came when the Hughes’ learned about Linda Messbauer, a New York City designer of MSE rooms. Messbauer is on the autism spectrum herself and is one of the founders of the American Association of Multi-Sensory Environment and the developer of the first MSE in the United States in 1992. Jacqueline Hughes’s sister, Jennifer Sullivan, CEO at St. James Mercy Hospital in Hornell, contacted Messbauer and a group from the task force met with her in New York City. The Way-Co group worked with Messbauer to design their MSE room. She provided training to Way-Co staff on how the MSE equipment works. Messbauer attended the ribbon cutting at the school.”
