Have you heard of a Sensory Theraplay Box?
If you haven’t, then here are three reasons your special needs family should try a Sensory Theraplay Box today.
What special needs family doesn’t appreciate online shopping? You can shop while your child is asleep, or at therapy or on your lunch break, and your items appear at your door. What is great about the Sensory Theraplay Box is that you get a wide variety of items with just one click.
Specially Selected Sensory Items:
It is clear that each Sensory Theraplay Box is put together with care. There are items that support both fine and gross motor development, as well as items that address several different senses.
New and Different:
If your child with special needs gets bored with items – or they get, um, “overloved” and need to be discarded, then a fresh box of surprises showing up once a month is a perfect fit.
So, you may be wondering if there are any downsides to the Sensory Theraplay Box? There are a couple, but I have found ways to address both of these concerns.
A few items are smaller than I would I like for my gross-motor-inclined child. I can’t leave him alone with those items, so items like the scented erasers will be either shared with other kids or taken along to be used during an occupational therapy or other session.
Spoiled by my experiences with FabFitFun and other grown-up subscription boxes, I’m used to at least some level of customization. Who knows? Maybe in the coming months that will be an option. Until then, however, I have found plenty in each box that works for Mr. Diggy. And B – and some of our team of staff – have benefitted from a few gifts as well.
