Sensory integration training involves helping children organise and process information from several senses like sound, taste, touch, sight and movement. The sensory play equipment and toys on this page support kids with integration disorders so they can interpret sensory information more accurately. Sensory play equipment and toys make the toleration of sensory stimuli easier and it helps to perform routine sensory-motor tasks better. The combination of these therapeutic sensory integration toys and occupational therapy tools can be very helpful.
Both toddlers and (pre-)schoolers can benefit from regular activities throughout the day. When using different senses together, children are more likely to learn. It is important to provide children in the various age groups sensory diets that are designed to fit the specific needs of toddlers, preschoolers and older children in the age group 6 to 12 yrs. In doing so, children will show improved focus, better behaviour, increased attention and calmer feelings among other things. The sensory toys for toddlers and older kids on this page all address these issue. With every item an age indication is mentioned so you can easily pick and choose the most relevant sensory integration toys and play equipment.
