The Benefits of Sensory Play for Children with Autism

The Benefits of Sensory Play for Children with Autism

All children can benefit from sensory play activities, which stimulate the senses of touch, sound, taste, sight, and smell. Sensory play helps to facilitate understanding and creativity. However, sensory play can be particularly beneficial for children with autism, changing the way their brains react to touch, sight, sound, and movement.

One simple way to integrate sensory play into your daily routine is through the use of a sensory playmat. Available in a wide range of textures, colours, and designs, sensory play mats provide a variety of stimulating sensations for your child to explore.

Sensory playmats are a great way to encourage exploration and discovery in all children. However, for children with autism specifically, sensory play mats can help to develop essential skills such as communication, social interaction, and fine motor skills.

Sensory playmats are also a great way to provide deep pressure input for children with autism who may benefit from this type of stimulation. Deep pressure input refers to any type of firm touch or pressure that is applied evenly over the body. This type of stimulation can help to calm and focus children with autism who may be feeling overwhelmed or anxious.
