Globbles on Amazon

These Globbles are an interesting Tactile Sensory Processing item! They are very sticky, and even stick to each other well!  Kids can squeeze, poke, smash them and experience a unique type of texture when using them!  For smaller kids, use with caution and/or adult supervision.

For kids with Sensory Issues! They may love the vibration and seek out that sensation for deep pressure on their arms and legs. If they don’t like the sensation, it may be something to work towards.

Tactile Sensory Processing Episode 3 Special Needs Topics

Episode 3: Tactile Sensory Processing

In this Episode of The Special Needs Podcast, I talk about one aspect of Tactile Sensory Processing.  In my Occupational Therapy practice with kids and families I see issues with this area a lot!  There are so many things to talk about, that I will be breaking this one up into multiple episodes in order to try and keep things from getting too confusing!

Today, I am focusing mostly on kids that have some sensitivities to things touching them, and I give one long example with explanations.
