AD Verheul is considered by many as the “founding father” of multisensory environments (Snoezelen) and has worked with MSE in Europe for over 30 years. Ad conducts many seminars on MSE in countries around the world. Since the early 70’s Ad has designed, implemented and ran MSE at the Hartenberg Center and throughout Europe. In 1974 Ad Verheul and his colleague Jan Hulsegge introduced the idea of Snoezelen. When they started and invented this special activity for profoundly mentally handicapped people, it became a great success in a short time! We never thought that such a simple idea would wake worldwide interest.
