What are the benefits of sensory toys? This is a question we get on our SentioLife Solutions Facebook page and our KidCompanions Facebook page. We often receive messages from distraught parents asking for solutions for their child who has challenging behaviors. Like it is often said, “Behavior is a form of COMMUNICATION”; therefore, it is best to search for the root of the problem.
This means parents, teachers, and therapists have to figure out what is causing their child/student with autism, sensory processing disorder, ADHD, Down syndrome, etc. to act a certain way. Knowing what triggers their child’s behavior makes it possible to find a strategy to help help them. The answer may be as simple as providing sensory toys or a chewy fidget.
How can I know if my child needs an oral-sensory necklace or other sensory toys?
Would he use a chew necklace at school? Would he benefit from a hand fidget or mouth fidget?
