Sensory Wall Toy Benefits
Sensory wall toys can be very beneficial for children with Autism and/or ADHD as they can provide a sense of calm and help children to focus and self-regulate their behaviour as well as improving visual, auditory and tactile sensory processing skills. Most sensory wall panels autism also help develop fine motor skills and can increase cognitive development.
Sensory wall toys can be used to help create a multi-sensory environment as many children with developmental delay, Autism, ADHD can have issues with sensory integration which means that they may have difficulty in making connections between their tactile, Proprioreceptive and vestibular sensory systems. So the brain may react differently with sensory input by having problems integrating or organising new information appropriately.
Sensory wall panels add value to play as they can facilitate social interaction as children can play with their peers, taking turns and problem solving together or also independently or with a 1 to1 help. They are often appealing to children and can help to invite children to come and play as they are often colourful and engaging and attract children's attention. Many sensory wall panels also help children to understand cause and effect and can stimulate imaginative play so children can understand how to process their emotions in a healthy way.
