Katie Haywood M.S., OTR/L, occupational therapist at the Pineville office of Child and Family Development, is getting ready for the holiday season now!
She found this post called “The Ultimate List of Gifts for Sensory Seekers”. The MamaOT blog shares this information so you can find the right products for children with sensory processing difficulties. Really, most any kid will like these toys!
The list contains over 50 items and categorizes them into practical therapeutic sections. Here are just a few examples:
JUMPING, BOUNCING & BALANCING: Mini trampoline with handle
SPINNING: Radio Flyer Spin n Saucer
ORAL STIMULATION: Chewigem jewelry for kids
PUSHING & CRASHING: Body Sox that provides calming, whole-body proprioceptive input
For a full and printable list of these gifts, click here.
