Lavender Scented Aromatherapy Weighted Cat Stuffed Animal


I have not purchased this specific item, but I have purchased similar ones.  They have been wonderful for providing some olfactory (sense of smell) stimulation at the same time as providing some calming pressure from the weight of the item.

Weighted Lap Pad

Weighted lap pads are a great addition to your child’s sensory diet needs. It can help provide deep pressure / proprioceptive input to help them feel calm.

Proprioceptive Sensory Processing Episode 8 Special Needs Topics

In this episode I discuss what Proprioceptive Sensory Processing or Proprioception is in detail. I give examples of what this might look like with kids who are having issues in this area of sensory processing. Examples of activities to do with them are also given.

Here are some useful links from today’s show:

Dynamic Body Sox

A fun and useful activity for kids who have issues with body awareness and motor planning. Can be used as a Proprioceptive Sensory activity for kids with sensory needs. Kids get inside and push with their arms and legs to feel the resistance and give excellent pressure to their body for calming and organizing sensations.

Gymnic Disc-O-Sit Jr. Inflatable Seat Cushion

This item is great for posture and core activation. However, it is also great for Vestibular and Proprioceptive Sensory Processing. For those kids that have trouble sitting still, this can give them the stimulation they are looking for while they are still sitting in one place. It can help them stay seated long enough to play with toys or maybe even for meal or snack time.
