If you have a child with Autism, it is important to provide them with opportunities for sensory play. Some kids are more sensitive than others and may find certain textures or sounds too intense. You can help your little one adjust by giving them toys that involve touch (like sand), sound (bells), and sight( pictures).
People with autism often struggle to process information, but the way they receive it is just as important. Sensory issues can make things difficult for someone who has this condition and may need extra support in order to keep up with everything going on around them.
The five senses are experienced through play. Sensory toys stimulate a child’s sight, sound, and more to encourage their natural curiosity about the world around them in an environment where safety and comfort is top priority!
