Sensory and Therapy tools are an important tool that help aid those who struggle to develop fine, gross, visual and oral motor skills. Sensory tools play a critical role in occupational therapy as they can help clients to develop the skills necessary for daily living and improve their overall quality of life.
Here are some ways sensory and therapy tools can assist in Occupation Therapy:
Sensory Integration Tools: Sensory integration tools like weighted blankets, fidget toys, and sensory balls can help individuals with sensory processing disorders. These tools provide deep pressure input and proprioceptive feedback to the body, which can help individuals with sensory processing disorders to feel more grounded, calm, and focused.
Fine Motor Tools: Fine motor tools like play dough, tweezers, and pegboards can help individuals with fine motor difficulties to improve their dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and finger strength. These tools are especially useful for children who are learning to write, draw, and manipulate objects.
Gross Motor Tools: Gross motor tools like therapy balls, balance boards, and trampolines can help individuals with gross motor difficulties to improve their coordination, balance, and strength. These tools are especially useful for children with developmental delays or physical disabilities.
Adaptive Equipment: Adaptive equipment like splints, braces, and adaptive utensils can help individuals with physical disabilities to participate in everyday activities. These tools can help individuals with limited mobility to perform tasks like eating, dressing, and grooming more independently.
