What Does it Mean to Have SPD?
What Are the Senses? It’s Not as Obvious as it Seems
- Sense of balance: Measured by the vestibular system, this is how you can close your eyes, and still know exactly what position your arms and legs are in, relative to gravity.
- Body Awareness: This is scientifically known as ‘proprioception’- it helps in the understanding of where one’s limbs are, in relation to surroundings
- Interoception: This means internal bodily cues, like hunger, fatigue, need to use the bathroom.

"Our daughter is very very energetic and very sensitive to noise. I decided to try the sensory cocoon to see if it would help ground her.
With we received it she put it on and we could see the calming effect almost immediately! Within an hour she drew this picture of her mother and baby brother, and herself in the cocoon.
Its not a magic bullet, and we are still learning how to incorporate it into her daily life, but it has become a great tool to help give her a safe place to calm her body."

"We LOOOVE our ear buddies. Well our ASD son does! He has anxieties with loud and crowded places. We tried his ear buddies headphones when we went out to eat and they worked phenomenal for him. In our eyes they where completely life changing. He did not have a sensory meltdown and he was in his own world. Where the noises and crowds where blocked out."
