Sensory Pull Bottle Helps Children with Autism or sensory Processing Disorders 2m39s

Sensory Pull Bottle Helps Children with Autism or sensory Processing Disorders

The "sensory pull bottle" is a fun way to help young children develop hand strength, coordination between right and left hands and to develop a hand preference. I incorporate this activity when working with children with developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing disorders or other impairments that impact developing hand skills. It can be used while the child is sitting, kneeling, standing, riding a horse or moving in other ways. The combination of movement, pulling and vibration helps to motivate and engage children.

"Sensory Rings" Help Children with Autism or Sensory Processing Disorders 3m06s

"Sensory Rings" Help Children with Autism or Sensory Processing Disorders

Children with autism, sensory processing disorders or other types of developmental disabilities often find heavy pressure from using heavy or tight squeezing materials calming. They may seek this type of sensation by crashing into cushions or people! This video shows how to make "sensory rings" out of socks and supermarket bags. They are virtually free and quick to make. Moving the rings over the body develops body awareness and coordination while meeting the child's sensory needs. Learn more at RecyclingOT.com

Hippotherapy with Children with Autism or Sensory Processing Disorders

Hippotherapy involves using the horse as a treatment tool. It is used by occupational, physical and speech therapists to develop motor, cognitive, communication, social and many other skills. The movement of the horse and the emotional bond that riders develop help children and adults with disabilities to focus, decrease touch sensitivities and use their hands to develop fine-motor skills.

How Vibration Helps Children with Autism or Sensory Processing Disorders 3m37s

How Vibration Helps Children with Autism or Sensory Processing Disorders

Children with or without disabilities often love vibration! Vibration stimulates the muscles and joints and this, in turn, helps develop body awareness and coordination. The sound and feel of the motor often motivates individuals with autism or sensory processing disorders to grasp and manipulate objects such as ring stacks or stringing even though they typically avoid using their hands. I adapt many activities to vibrate when I work as an occupational therapist with both children and adults with developmental disabilities. This video demonstrates just a few of my creations. There are many more strategies in my book From Flapping to Function: A Parent's Guide to Autism and Hand Skills. Learn more at RecyclingOT.com
