Day 15: My Autism Video Diary – What is she chewing on now???

Ugh, sensory issues are so hard!  Just when you think, just maybe, the days of picking tiny pieces of non-edible things out of their mouths is over, it’s not.  The need obviously comes and goes, for Abbey anyway.  Pica, or chewing on all those non-edible things, has always been a problem for Abbey.  We go through so much Spry gum, it’s crazy!

We’re working on getting her a big trampoline again, realizing how much she really does need that outlet and that sensory input.  Finding the sensory things that help them, can make such a difference and teaching them to learn to ask for those things is imperative!

So, yes, it’s hard every year to pick out presents for Abbey.  She can’t go on Amazon and make a wish list like my other kids…yet.  So, sometimes we pick winners and sometimes we don’t.  Here are some great things that were definite winners this year!

First is a little hand massager.  We put this on her communicating app, as an option and she asks for this at bedtime.  It helps her relax.  (Picture is a link for it, it is a paid link:)

Next are see through blocks that nest and stack.  The ability to pick which size fits in which is an early math skill that Abbey still needs help with and she LOVES to look through transparent things with different colors, so 2 awesome features in one. Transparent Stacking Tower, link for it (paid link.)

And finally, Abbey loves squishies, I mean really loves squishy toys.  Our problem is, we go through them quickly as they pop and sometimes quite messily if they are filled with goo!  Here is a totally cool one that Abbey loves that will hold up!! (Picture is a link for it, it is a paid link:)

Hope this gives you guys some ideas!  Great to offer the pictures of these objects and have them ask for them, to work on communication too!
