We are one week closer to school starting, and that means getting your child ready with all the latest gadgets and gizmos to make them successful in school and at home! If you missed last week's post on easing the transition back to school, be sure to check it out here.
As an autism specialist, I have seen a lot of techniques and cool tools used in therapy, in the classroom, and at home to give children that extra edge toward success. I thought this might be the perfect time to share some of my favorite gear with all of you. I am not affiliated with any of these companies, they are either products that I have seen used and LOVED or amazing concepts that might benefit your family and little one!
I could probably write an entire post on my favorite sensory tools, and I just might someday, but chewies that are inconspicuous and effective are my favorite! Check out Fun and Function, using the link above, to see their diverse range of chewies and other sensory tools!
This is by far my FAVORITE putty on the market. I like it so much that I keep a tin on my desk in my office. Crazy Aaron’s has a diverse range of colors, including glow-in-the-dark, and this putty is sturdy! Let your child pull and play away without fear of it being destroyed.
Clothing and Accessories:
I JUST saw this on Facebook yesterday and quickly had to add it to this post. While I don’t know how much success individuals have experienced using this tool, I thought the concept was incredible. If your child struggles with tooth brushing time, this might just be the solution.
Much like I advocate for non-toxic lunch gear, I am very pro non-toxic body products. What we put on our skin is directly absorbed into our blood stream, that includes the ever essential deodorant we need to wear each day. While I have not tried this product, the reviews are excellent. For natural deodorants that are not children specific, check out Dragonfly Traditions or Stinkbug Naturals.
I hope you learned about some new products and ideas for your little one. These may not be perfect for every family, but maybe they will help just one child out there!
Join me next week for a delicious allergy-friendly recipe roundup to make school lunches delicious and dinner time quick and easy!
