Sensory Seekers Holiday Gift Guide




Welcome to part three of our holiday guide. The holidays can be stressful and trying to find the right gift for everyone only adds to the stress. When it comes to gifts for kiddos, you really don’t need an expensive toy that makes tons of sounds and has bright lights. In fact, sometimes for sensory seeking children bright lights and noises are the opposite of what they need. There are different types of sensory seekers. Some seek auditory input aka loud noises while others need it to be quiet. Other children crave vestibular input or spinning.


Here are some suggestions to help find toys that are great for each type of sensory seeking child:
