The Big Sensory Gift Guide

kids playing with blocks

As we all know, this time of year is centered around gift giving, which also means a lot of shopping. We’ve been asked before what are some of our recommendations to help kids continue to develop the skills they are working on in therapy, so we’ve put together a sensory gift guide full of items that are parent and therapist approved.

Please note that a lot of these are merely a guideline/idea, so don’t feel as though you need to purchase any specific brand where there are other alternatives. Almost every link goes through AmazonSmile, so make sure you are logged in to spread a little more holiday cheer around! Lastly, make sure to bookmark this link so you can refer back to it for birthdays and other occasions.
