Abstract/Description

Keywords: Sensory Toolkit, Parent education, Sensory activities, Sensorimotor activities, Sensory strategies, Play

This project attempts to provide parents with educational and easily accessible videos on sensory play activities for children. We will call this compilation of videos, “Sensory Diet Toolkit for Parents.” Before we provide parents with the videos, we will conduct parent focus groups to determine the wants and needs of parents for this type of resource. Our project aim is to help parents gain a better understanding of their child’s sensory needs and what strategies can be used accordingly. Based on the parent feedback, these videos will include activities that can be done at home or within the community revolving around play, as play is an important occupation for children and vital for their development. Our videos will work to encourage parents to play with their children while utilizing the vestibular, tactile, and proprioceptive sensory systems.
