About Brian & Stephanie Brijbag’s Commitment to Sensory Rooms for Children in Hernando County

Brian and Stephanie Brijbag and the Brijbag Family Foundation donated $8,000 to the Hernando County Education Foundation to establish “Rachel’s Room” in schools in Hernando County. This donation was matched through several means with the Hernando County Education Foundation including but not limited to the school district education foundation matching grant program, Suncoast Credit Union, and the Hernando County Education Foundation.

Rachel’s Room is a Sensory room. Sensory rooms use sensory equipment to create a controlled sensory-focused environment. These environments allow sensory experiences to be individually tailored to meet the specific needs of an individual. The rooms will be named Rachel’s Room after his daughter who is autistic. Brian’s passion was to create the rooms after experiencing first-hand what it’s like to have a child with autism in the public school.
