Sometimes it can be very overwhelming as a parent who has a child with Sensory Processing Disorder especially when you're trying to find the right sensory toys and tools. 
There's so many products out there today and several stores that it can get confusing where to buy sensory diet tools and equipment. Using sensory tools and toys can be so helpful for children who have sensory processing disorder.

Sensory Processing Disorder Sensory Diet Toys & Tools. Finding the right sensory tools for your child can be overwhelming and confusing.

Sensory tools are an important part of therapy when helping children with sensory differences. These sensory tools provide sensory input that children need to regulate their responses to sensory input and improve their sensory processing. Sensory toys and tools can help children with their fine motor and gross motor skills and with sensory regulation.

Sensory toys and tools can be used both at home and in therapy, making it easier for children to receive the sensory input they need regularly. Children with sensory processing disorder can experience a wide range of sensory differences and difficulties.

Some may be hypersensitive, meaning they are easily overwhelmed by sensory input, while others may be hyposensitive, meaning they seek out intense sensory input.

There are several specialty sensory stores that sell sensory tools specifically designed for children with sensory processing disorder. These stores often have a lot of sensory products to choose from and their staff may have knowledge in sensory processing disorder. 

Online sensory stores like the ones listed below on this page offer a wide variety of sensory tools and toys. You can browse through their products from the comfort of your own home and have the products conveniently delivered right to your doorstep.

Your child’s therapist or pediatrician may also have recommendations for specific sensory tools and toys that they have found to be effective and may be best for your child's sensory needs.

There are also many DIY sensory tool ideas available online. These can be a fun way to create sensory tools with your child and cost a lot less too. Ask your child's occupational therapist for some ideas.

Some of these businesses are run by parents of children who also have sensory differences, while others are started by occupational therapists or special educators.

These businesses offer a lot of different sensory products like fidgets, compression clothing and sensory bins too. They are sensory tools and toys are designed to help children with sensory challenges.

My son, Chris, told me he wanted to study music at college. I thought "Why do people fail at doing things they love?" Maybe they don't understand the business around it.
Together, we realized how many people are actually uncomfortable in their clothing. So, we started to design for the texture sensitive (flat seams, no tags, no-cling fabrics) to ensure everyone is comfortable.
During this journey, we have seen how hard the textile industry is on the environment. Clothing/textile manufacturing is the second largest global polluter behind oil.
As a result, our fabrics contain recycled post consumer content, as well as highly sustainable threads made from saw dust and corn waste.

Soundsory's program consists of specially-designed music processed through neuro-acoustic modifications combined with a series of movement-based exercises.
Soundsory utilizes specific auditory inputs to stimulate multiple parts of the brain through music and movement, thereby integrating and improving motor, emotional and cognitive skills.

It is based on a concept known as neuroplasticity, i.e. the brain can change itself and create new connections through specific and repeated stimulation. It is a 40 day program with 30 minutes of simulataneous rhythmic music listening and body movement exercises.
