"I bought this product to learn a little more about the sensory system. It not only gave me more information about how the sensory system works but it gives great realistic exercises that can be used at home, at school and at other types of facilities."
What is a sensory diet?
Just as your child needs food throughout the course of the day, his need for sensory input must also be met. A “sensory diet” (coined by OT Patricia Wilbarger) is a carefully designed, personalised activity plan that provides the sensory input a person needs to stay focused and organized throughout the day.
Each child has a unique set of sensory needs. Generally, a child whose nervous system is on “high trigger/too wired” needs more calming input, while the child who is more “sluggish/too tired” needs more arousing input.
- Develop activity in groups or one-to-one
- Can be be used at home or in school
- Suitable for ages 5+
