"Learning To Achieve"

Sensory Pack


Sensory Packs draws together touch and music to create a structured half hour of sensory communication between two people.


Some of the objects used for Sensory pack activities include: a washing up sponge, chopsticks, a pastry brush, a fan, a paint roller and marbles – to name a few. These are all objects which you may already have around your home. There is no need to buy any expensive equipment. We have provided you with a rice sock (which you can warm for 1 min in the microwave), ice pack (to be frozen) and beads. We have given links to music, but feel free to adapt using music that is appropriate for your child. Take your time to establish a safe, trusting and predictable environment, whereby you and your child can gently start to establish a sensory communication.
