Weighted Blanket
I purchased our first one off Etsy and the seller is no longer active.  The rule is 1lb of blanket to every 10lbs of kid.  Nolan has a 3lb toddler size blanket, so Nolan grew and we got him a new, heavier blanket from Amazon.
Bed Sock-from Boston’s Bed Soxz
Helps Nolan sleep by giving him deep pressure all night. Also is a great sensory break when he tunnels in it and back out.  We have one on a crib mattress for travel and a twin for his daily bed.  They are made larger as well.

Picture Schedule
I created the pictures schedule on my own using mycutegraphics.com for the clip art and then pictures of the locations in which he goes as well. We haven’t done super detailed, more for a first then and bedtime routine. I have laminated them to help with them last longer.
***I also have a Technology time/Chore chart available as a freebie.

Swing
Purchased off of Amazon.  Also purchases ceiling anchors, ropes, and clips.  This swing allows for vestibular pressure, fun, and a cozy place to hang out.  Nolan has loved it greatly, and Stella does too! Very affordable.

Trampoline
We purchased off a discount site (google search, shopping)  I believe it was jet or something, but here is the link to the one we have. We love the size–big but not huge–they can get in without a step.  It fits in our garage in the winter to give them some exercise and vestibular work in the winter as well.

Chewlery
We use ArkTherapeutics chewlery for Nolan. When we first got it, he was not a chewer,he was more of a mouther so we got the soft. Since we got the chewlery, he has been using it appropriately and has become more of a chewer so we have moved up in hardness.  He likes the ones with texture more.  We shorten the strings (push through the clasp on one side, cut, re-knot, pull back into clasp).

Sensory Bubble Tube
We got the tube after Nolan loved his at his ABA Center’s new sensory room.  Both kids love to watch the fish and bubbles.  Nolan does like to hit it when he’s excited so we did purchase a wall bracket to hold it.  We actually haven’t installed it yet though because we put it in a location that if he bumps it it can only tip into a wall.

Fidget/Busy Cube
Wooden busy cube that Nolan has fallen in love with. His favorite side is the gears. I love the durability and testing she does, but I also how cute it is! BZ Littles has GREAT wooden fidgets/busy boards and other toys too!

ProLoQuo2Go
Nolan has an iPad with the speech technology ProLoQuo2Go. It is great to personalize with images while giving him a voice.



FatBrain Toys SpinAgain
This spinner toy has provided visual stimulation, fine motor skills, turn taking, and independent play for Nolan. It has been a great toy in our house and may be a good one in yours, too.


NeeDoh Ball
This sensory squishy ball has provided great fine motor strengthening, independent play, and “open” requests in our home. It has been great for Nolan, us, and Stella, too.
