Most of us have a sense of our position and our body movements. We are able to process the stimuli that tell us these things about our own bodies. However, children with sensory processing disorders are challenged when it comes to their proprioceptive abilities. This is why they seek out behaviors to provide them with sensory feedback, such as rocking back and forth, spinning, running, chewing, or jumping. Weighted therapy helps calm this need for “sensory seeking.”
Weighted therapy is endorsed by pediatricians and clinical therapists who work with children who have autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD, and other sensory processing disorders.
We use organic buckwheat husks as the filling in all our weighted toys. It gives them a very characteristic handfeel and weight, that can stimulate and encourage calmness.
Our weighted toys are filled with organic buckwheat husks to give your child’s fingers something to play with and a handfeel that enhances calmness.
