Back to School Tips for Kids + Sensory Supplies List
Ohh, it's that time of year again! Most children are excited at the idea of going back to school, seeing their old friends after summer holidays and enjoying the routine of school life. But for some kids, this time of year can be quite challenging. The idea of a new teacher, new classroom, and walking through a very loud and busy school can be quite daunting.
The great news is that we as parents are able to minimize the challenges and help kids prep for a great first day, and successful year.
This is a great article on how to help your child with sensory issues prepare for the return to school (re-posted from smartknitkids.com):
One of the things we have found useful with our own kids is to send them to class with a sensory break bag full of great school tools! All of these product help with self-regulation, focus, and are small and effective ways to help kids in the classroom. These include items like:
- pencil grips,
- chewy necklaces and chewy pencil toppers,
- left-handed scissors,
- weighted products (vests, lap pads, belts)
- special seating & cushions,
- lycra resistance products
The great news is that all of the products above are available in Qatar at SensorySouk.com! You simply place your order and select if you'd like it to be delivered for a small fee or if you'd like to collect it from one of our collection points in Doha or Wakrah.
