Links
These links are for websites and products frequently requested by parents.  They are here for your information, but the products described are in no way required! It's often possible to comparison shop online for a better price, which I encourage.  If you are considering purchase of sensory or other equipment, it may be available as a brief loan from school to test effectiveness. Remember, close supervision is needed for all sensory strategies and equipment!
