Sensory Living Pathways
As an Occupational Therapist, Aoife Costello, the creator of Sensory Living Paths by Occupational Therapy ABC has worked extensively with schools, teachers, parents and caregivers to formulate all the major motor skills and sensory regulatory activities into these wonderfully fun paths.
Auditory Regulators helps to block out background noise without distorting or lowering voices so that it is still possible to listen without the distraction of background noise. Ideal for children with language processing issues or children who are easily distracted by background noises .
As an Occupational therapist, I truly believe weighted blankets provide huge benefits for both children and adults. Weighted blankets work in a way that's similar to an OT technique called deep touch pressure. Pressure on the body can increase the release of serotonin in the brain. This neurotransmitter is sometimes called the “happy” chemical because it creates a sense of calm and well-being.
Sensory Survival Guide
As an Occupational Therapist with a keen interest in sensory processing, I decided to create a sensory guide full of sensory strategies to help parents and teachers who are not educated on sensory processing and a guide to support your child on their sensory processing journey.
Occupational therapy (OT) boxes containing items for kids with special needs which focus on developing and improving children's functional skills including fine motor skills or handwriting skills. The OT boxes are also ideal for parents interested in the development and promotion of functional everyday skills and excellent for children with developmental delays or sensory issues.

After using the OT box I could see significant changes in Matt's behaviour even in the first few days, the first marked changes have been an increase in Matt's attention levels. He is also much calmer and more comfortable in social environments. Sinead, 40★★★★★
