The unique proprioceptive and tactile input children can experience with the Silly Stretchy Suit [Body Sock] is unparalleled! Many child with sensory processing disorders / sensory integration dysfunction benefit from use through play and therapy.
Body Socks are designed for spacial awareness and interaction. Each pillow-case-like sack is made from a translucent lycra material with a reinforced hook and loop-closed entrance.
Once inside, users find themselves in a private domain that lures them into kinesthetic exploration. As they move, they can explore the 3-dimensional space they individually occupy.
Silly Stretchy Suit [Body Sock] users quickly find out how easily it is to transform space and how balance and coordination affect this transformation. Users can create dancing images such as rolling rocks, hatching eggs, moving puzzle pieces, birds of flight and more!
Silly Stretchy Suit [Body Sock] can 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.
Another therapeutic activity the Silly Stretchy Suit [Body Sock] provides is heavy work/deep pressure input that is both calming and organising.
Through all of the movement activities in the Body Sock, children will have comfortable, resistive material to push against and have pushing against them. This will benefit children with tactile defensiveness as well as sensory seeking children.
The Silly Stretchy Suit [Body Sock] can also be used as a calming, sensory escape for children with Autism, PDD, Aspergers or ADD/ADHD. Children can sit in their Body Sock in a quiet room; in a play tent, tunnel or play hut; or listen to calming music or watch a favorite movie that relaxes them.
The Extra Large Silly Stretchy Suit [Body Sock] is suitable for children approx. 155cm plus. We also have Small, Med and Large Silly Stretchy Suit [Body Sock] available.
Colour Choice is limited and subject to availablity.
