Sensory Stimulation For Children With Serious Fine Motor Delays
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff

All children want to explore how the world works. For a child who is physically confined by a disability there are fewer opportunities to explore the properties of different objects. An accessible busy box is a wonderful chance to let children exercise their curiosity in a non-frustrating and available way.

Defusing Tactile Defensiveness in Children with Blindness, Autism, Down Syndrome, and More!

Try using the Koosh Switch with children who are tactile defensive, a condition often found in children with blindness, autism, PDD, FAS, and Down syndrome. By hooking a rewarding switch adapted toy up to the switch, children will be immediately rewarded for touching the Koosh. A Switch Adapted Bubble Blower would be a real treat!
