Re: What to buy a sensory seeker for the holidays?

My youngest (2 years old) had some sensory processing issues. We are in the process of getting a full sensory profile and therapy plan, but in the meantime, he is in speech therapy (severe delay). His speech therapist is awesome, and we do his speech therapy in their gym so we have access to a lot of the cool sensory toys. The absolute best thing for him when he's seeking is the steamroller, like this: http://www.autism-products.com/Autis...r_p/015695.htm I looked them up and found out they are pretty spendy, but if you have a sensory seeker and don't qualify for OT it might be worth it to save up for one. Another awesome tool is a weighted ball or a giant exercise ball to roll them back and forth over. The trampoline is also a great idea! I wish we had room for an indoor one for our little man. Jumping is so soothing to him.
