Spring Has Sprung

No matter where you live, I think you can agree that spring has sprung!  I live in the Chicagoland area and spring sprung very early here.  While being spoiled with 80 degree temperatures in early March, I should have known better than expect they would stay around.  Temps quickly ducked back into the 40s and 50s to keep me from fulling switching over my wardrobe for spring quite yet.  Now that it seems spring is really, truly here, it makes me have more energy and motivation to try new things.  One area that I am always looking for new things to try is in helping with my daughter's sensory needs.  She was diagnosed at the age of 2 with Sensory Processing Disorder.  At the age of 6 she was also diagnosed with Nonverbal Learning Disorder.  She is now 8 years old, so I have tried all kinds of sensory activities to help her regulate herself.  That trial (and a lot of error) process inspired the products we have designed for Sensory Stitches.  Each unique item is designed for a variety of possible uses. 
For example, our Sparky dog is perfect for sitting on a lap while reading a book or riding in the car.  Sparky is also great to put in a laundry basket and push around the house.  Make a list of items that Sparky needs to "pick up" and have your child "drive" Sparky on his errands.  You can work on direction following, proprioceptive input, motor planning, prioritizing, and so much more in that fun activity!
