New Star Room Designed Exclusively for Special Needs Children

New Star Room Designed Exclusively for Special Needs Children | NYU Winthrop Hospital

Special needs children have a safe haven for care at NYU Winthrop Hospital, thanks to the Hospital’s unique STAR program. The program was developed to assist families of children 18 years old and under with Down Syndrome or children on the autism spectrum by providing knowledge and positive coping strategies throughout the hospital experience.

Thanks to a recent grant from the Seventh District Foundation, the Department of Pediatrics was able to create a dedicated STAR room for these patients. Located within the Pediatric Specialty Office, this room is equipped with tools to de-stimulate, soothe and/or distract patients such as: weighted blankets, texture tangles, tactile rollers and more. It also features a brand new examination table. What’s more, a beautiful hand painted aquatic mural conveys tranquility to help complete the space.
