For children on the autism spectrum, sensory play is shown to be a valuable method for kids to discover, examine, and understand the world in their own way. The Cratejoy Marketplace includes several educational monthly subscription boxes that are tailor-made for children on the autism spectrum.
Christina Kozlowski, occupational therapist and founder of Sensory TheraPLAY Box, says she uses sensory toys and tools with the children she works with and frequently recommends them to parents. “The items inside Sensory TheraPLAY Box can be calming, help children self-regulate or manage anxiety,” she says. “Hand fidgets and textured toys to squeeze and manipulate can help children focus and provide needed sensory stimulation.”
