|When you’re choosing a body sock for a child, you want the length of it to be pretty close to the child’s height or slightly smaller so it’s sure to give them that push/squeeze sensation when they move against it.||Comes with a zipper bag great for keep and for traveling!|
What is a Body Sock?
A body sock is just what it sounds like…a pouch or sack that a child/adult can fit his/her entire body inside! It’s made out of lightweight lycra so it’s extremely stretchy with a nice resistive quality to it.
Swaddling is a natural comfort that we experience from birth. Childrens Body Awareness Pod is designed to support sensory processing in children that utilize their senses more readily to perform everyday task.
Good for tactile defensive children, sensory seekers and crashers (including children and tweens with autism)
The heavy duty stretch and elasticity allows children to move unobstructed while exploring in the safety and comfort of a pod that triggers natural relaxation and recognition experienced at birth.
Benefits of using a Body socks:
Body socks will help children with sensory processing disorders to work on "position in space" skills.
They must kinesthetically feel what their bodies are doing and how they are coordinating their body movements.
Watching themselves in a mirror, or creating shadows, will help them develop this proprioceptive sense , which is often dysfunctional in children with sensory integration dysfunction / sensory processing disorders.
It also provides heavy work/deep pressure input that is both calming and organizing. Through all of these movement activities in the lycra "body sock", they will have comfortable, resistive material to push against and have pushing against them.
This will benefit both children (or adults) with tactile defensiveness as well as the sensory seeking kids (you know them...the movers, shakers, crashers, endless "energizer bunnies"!)
NOTE: The "body sock" can also be used for sensory overloaded kids or children with Autism, PDD, Aspergers, or ADD/ADHD for a calming, sensory escape! Just let them crawl into it an sit in a quiet room, or in a play tent, tunnel, or play hut , or have them sit on an exercise ball and listen to calming music or watch a favorite movie that relaxes them.
The unique proprioceptive and tactile input children (or adults) experience with the body sock is unparalleled! Any child with sensory processing disorders / sensory integration dysfunction can benefit!
Activities suggestions you can do with the Body Sock:
1) Play relay races while wearing the body sock
2) Play freeze dance while wearing body sock
3) Use as a relaxing tool when child experiencing sensory overload
3) Crawl over pillows and through tunnels with body sock
4) Play a board game and puzzles while wearing body sock
Choosing the Right Body Sock:
When you’re choosing a body sock for a child, you want the length of it to be pretty close to the child’s height or slightly smaller so it’s sure to give them that push/squeeze sensation when they move against it.
Please measure accordingly to your child/adults height and determine the correct size of the body sock. If in doubt about the right size, get our professional consultations help.
