“We are very pleased that we have already received many completed questionnaires from all over the world. Thank you for this! If you still want to participate and share your experience about snoezelen with people with PIMD, you can complete the questionnaire via the following link until 14 June. Thank you in advance!

Dear healthcare or education professional, parent or relative,

Snoezelen is widely used in practice, but we still know little about the effects. That is why an international study is conducted into the application of snoezelen in persons with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD). We would like to invite parents and relatives and healthcare and education professionals to participate in this study.

 How do you participate?

By completing a questionnaire once (about 30 minutes). The questionnaire is available until 30 April 2021. Go to for the link to the study.



We are looking for

– parents/relatives
– healthcare and education professionals

who use snoezelen in persons with PIMD.
