What Is A Spectrum Playspace?

Providing children with autism spectrum disorders and other sensory integration disorders with increased levels of sensory stimulation can be a helpful way to support their sensory needs. Here are some strategies that may be helpful:


  1. Sensory activities: Sensory activities such as playing with sand, water, or slime, or engaging in tactile activities such as finger painting or playing with textured objects, can help provide children with increased levels of sensory stimulation.

  2. Movement activities: Movement activities such as jumping on a trampoline, swinging, or riding a bike can provide children with a proprioceptive input and help regulate their sensory systems.

  3. Deep pressure activities: Deep pressure activities such as rolling a therapy ball over a child's body or wrapping them in a weighted blanket can provide a calming effect and help regulate their sensory systems.

  4. Visual and auditory activities: Visual and auditory activities such as playing with bubbles, watching a light show or listening to calming music can help provide children with increased levels of sensory stimulation.

  5. Sensory toys: Providing children with sensory toys such as fidget spinners, chewy toys, or squishy balls can help provide increased levels of sensory stimulation and promote sensory regulation.


It is important to note that every child is different and may have unique sensory needs, so it is essential to work with a qualified healthcare professional or occupational therapist to develop an individualized sensory plan that best meets the needs of the child.
