For Children and Teens with sensory needs

Kid-friendly sensory strategy picture cards empower kids to take charge of their sensory needs! BrainWorks picture cards can be used with one of several different templates to create a unique sensory diet tool for each child, depending on age, setting (home or school), ability level, and type of sensory modulation disorder present. Arrow icons located on each picture card help a child to select activities appropriate for their sensory needs. For example, if a child needs to calm down his nervous system before going to math class, he knows to select an activity that has a red down arrow—this arrow indicates that the activity will slow him down or calm down his nervous system. JOIN NOW!
