These water beads can be a great tactile sensory play item! Parents should supervise their children when they are playing with these!
On this episode, I discuss issues with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and hair cuts, styles, and overall tactile sensory issues related to the hair and head. I provide some suggestions for helping kids with sensory processing disorder try to get through a hair cut.
Sensory Processing Disorder

For kids with Sensory Issues! They may love the vibration and seek out that sensation for deep pressure on their arms and legs. If they don’t like the sensation, it may be something to work towards.

This set of 4 toys has some popular toys that can be helpful with kids who like to squeeze and play with toys that have different textures.

This one comes with 4 balls that all have different textures and colors!
Episode 3: Tactile Sensory Processing
In this Episode of The Special Needs Podcast, I talk about one aspect of Tactile Sensory Processing. In my Occupational Therapy practice with kids and families I see issues with this area a lot! There are so many things to talk about, that I will be breaking this one up into multiple episodes in order to try and keep things from getting too confusing!
Today, I am focusing mostly on kids that have some sensitivities to things touching them, and I give one long example with explanations.
