Tactile Toys: Toys for Sensory Defensiveness and Tactile Stimulation
Integrated Learning Strategies (ILS) is a learning and academic center. As a reminder, ILS is not a health care provider and none of our materials or services provide a diagnosis or treatment of a specific condition or learning challenge you may see in your child or student. If you seek a diagnosis or treatment for your child or student, please contact a trained professional who can provide an evaluation of the child.
Providing your child with tactile toys for sensory integration to awaken their sensory receptors can decrease fidgeting, attention issues and behavior problems in the classroom. Kids who suck on their shirts, fidget at their desk, chew on pens and pencils, and seek out extreme flavors and textures may need tactile toys at their desk or in the home to calm the brain and the body.
In addition, many children who have trouble sitting still in their chair, often fidget or can’t focus and attend in school can have poor proprioception and oral sensory motor skills that require chewable toys, foods and clothing to prevent meltdowns, tantrums and emotional outbursts.
For better sensory integration, try developing your child’s tactile motor skills with fun tactile toys and activities.
