If you have a sensory seeker in your home, you know it. They are the kids who seem to be on a never-ending quest for sensory input. Faster! Bigger! Higher! MORE! In their attempts to meet their sensory needs, seekers can unintentionally be rough with toys (or peers) or take excessive risks during play. Here are some toys and equipment chosen with our seekers in mind.
Although our first three lists of gift ideas included only toys and games easily found at toy stores, due to the intense nature of the way sensory seekers interact with toys, many of the items on this list are found in therapy catalogs and websites. These products are designed with durability and safety in mind. If you have any questions about the products you are planning to order, such as the appropriate weight or size of the product for your child, or how to best use these items as part of a sensory diet, please contact your child’s clinician.
