Starting Sensory Therapy is a great toolkit for teachers and parents that offers over 100 activities and games for children with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs).

Parent of a son with SPD, author Bonnie Arnwine chose activities that require minimal time, money, and clean-up. Most "ingredients" required are already on hand: empty yogurt cups, string, soap, flour, paper plates, etc. If the kids tire of an activity, an "Extend It!" section shows how to use the same ingredients in new and different ways.

Kids have fun while activities exercise the seven sensory "muscles":

  1. Visual
  2. Auditory
  3. Tactile
  4. Olfactory
  5. Oral
  6. Vestibular
  7. Proprioceptive senses.

Activities can be enjoyed with others, so children also benefit from interacting socially with their peers, parents, and teachers.
