Sensory related issues has become more and more prevalent in the special education community. Most often, sensory processing issues can be considered a symptom of autism because a lot of children with autism have significant sensory issues. However, it is important to note that all children with sensory issues do not have an autism spectrum disorder. For example, children who are diagnosed with ADHD, OCD or a Sensory Processing Disorder can also experience significant sensory related issues.
If this is your child, what do you do?
Luckily with an increase awareness of autism and sensory related issues, there are many products that can help your child regulate their sensory input. But first, it is important to find out what sensory related behaviors your child is experiencing. Your child can be exhibiting behaviors such as crashing into walls, screaming if something touches them, throwing tantrums when brushing their teeth or putting inedible things in their mouth such as soap and paint.
Unfortunately, many parents struggle with how to help their child cope with their sensory related issues. As for many special needs parents, they have tried countless products to help regulate their child’s sensory processing issues by integrating their senses. Sensory integration involves processing and organizing sensory information from many senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, smell, movement (vestibular), and body awareness (proprioceptive sense). If your child is experiencing any difficulties with processing sensory information, try the Snuggle Huggle. The Snuggle Huggle by InYard Products helps with sensory integration by regulating behavior as well as providing deep pressure for your child.
I have worked with several children who have benefited from the calming effect of deep pressure. With the Snuggle Huggle, your child will love to stretch, move and relax, while receiving calming sensory integration therapy. I have tried the Snuggle Huggle with a few children and I had a hard time getting them out of it because they loved the feel of it. I also noticed that it provided a soothing effect for their mood. In the future, I would try this with children who need sensory breaks and/or some calming moments during before and after school activities.
A nice thing about the Snuggle Huggle is that it comes in a nice carry tote for easy storage and transport.
It is made of 80% polyester/20% lycra and has a nice soft and comfortable feel. InYard Product states that it is appropriate for children 3 years and older with a height of 47” (for small), 47”- 63” (for medium) and 63”+ (for large). It comes in a few colors: green, light blue, dark blue and red.
I tried the dark blue one. And as I said, I had a difficult time getting him out. I guess that is a good thing 🙂 .
