How Are Sensory Toys Used For Autism?

As more parents and children discover the benefits of sensory play, an increasing number of products are being marketed as sensory toys for autism. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, there are definitely some standout items that can be beneficial for kids with autism.

These products are used in a number of ways. For instance:

  • Chewable toys are used to help kids calm, focus, and be stimulated without overloading their senses. Many children take these toys with them to school and on outings to prevent meltdowns or sensory overload.
  • Weighted items such as vests, blankets, and lap pads help provide a sense of security and comfort for kids who crave deep pressure input.
  • Fidget toys offer a way for kids to release excess energy while remaining relatively calm. These are often used in classrooms and during therapy sessions.
  • Bubble machines, water tables, and other similar items provide visual and tactile stimulation for kids who need extra sensory input. These can be used in both indoor and outdoor settings.

The important thing is to find a toy that meets the specific needs of your child. Combined with regular therapeutic intervention, sensory toys can help kids with autism lead healthier, happier lives.
