Ball Pit– Besides being lots of fun, ball pits give lots of that deep pressure input. Remember, for most kids, that equals calm! Balance Beam– Besides balance, every time your child figures out how to walk across this, they’re also working on some higher level brain activity stuff. They have to shift their weight and repeatedly cross the mid-line of their body. If that all sounds too technical, know that this is awesome for their development!

Crash pad– This is a simple sensory toy, but you can get some serious use out of it. I’ve made one for each for my kids, which is basically a huge pillow with chunks of foam and pillow stuffing inside. They’re great to lay on, but sensory seekers love to jump into them. This provides a pretty safe landing for leaps from the top of the couch. Platform Swing– This swing actually can help improve sensory processing as it stimulates the brain through specific types of movement. And, if your child’s ever been in occupational therapy, you’ve probably seen one. This budget friendly version can be hung up in your home or from a swing set outside. In simple terms, crash pads are amped-up bean bag pads that provide deep pressure stimulation. It's large, about four feet in diameter, and filled with furniture-grade foam. Your autistic child can crash, smash, bash, and jump on this pad as much as he wants. What Are the Benefits?Sensory Bins– I’m sort of obsessed with sensory bins, and don’t think that they’re just for young kids, because older kids can still get in on the fun. Besides getting a lot of tactile input, you can also hide puzzle pieces and hidden objects for them to find. Want to make it more challenging, have them close their eyes while searching for buried treasures! Shaker Eggs– Babies and toddlers will love getting a reaction to their movement when they shake these eggs about. They’re small enough to fit in the tiniest hands!
