Connecting Through Sensory Play
This Mother’s Approach To Play At Home
I was thrilled to be contacted by Stephanie at Two-daloo to speak about the parent side of sensory play and sensory processing. Although this type of play is great for children with Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder, it is also wonderful for any child.
What does sensory play mean to a parent and specifically what does it mean to a parent of a child on the autism spectrum and diagnosed with sensory processing disorder? How do parents adjust, grow, change and embrace this new type of play in their homes? I am excited to share what we have learned and are still learning today. I hope my insight, from a mother’s point of view, can help you understand the role sensory play can have in your home. Please head over to Two-daloo to read all about our sensory play adventure!
Sensory play and sensory bins are a huge part of our daily schedule. We always have something available to play with at any time. Currently he finds craft sand to be a lot of fun and calming too. He will often play with it independently which is almost unheard of around here. However, he really like to play with it with me! I also find it relaxing filling the jars with sand, using the funnels and and just sifting through the colors.
