Johnathan was a typical child until the age of 1. Around that time he started to regress and we lost our baby boy into the world of Autism. It has been a rough(but rewarding) ride. Lots of tests, therapies, adapting to his world and lots of emotions. We now have johnathan on some of the best vitamins and minerals on the market. They are expensive and take a toll on our finances. One thing that has been proven to help kids like johnathan is a multi-sensory room. Autism affects a child's senses and it is very important to work on all senses to help calm and regulate behavior. We have an extra bedroom in our house that we would like to turn in to a sensory/therapy room. We want to encorporate all activities to address all 7 senses. Yes there are seven senses, not just five. We want to address proprioceptive, vestibular, tactile, taste, smell, auditory and visual therapies into our room. We have a whole list of items needed for the room, but here are just a few: jumpolene, ball pit, crash pad, lava lamps, textured balls, indoor cuddle swing, bean bag chair, foam, play dough and other tactile items, hand held back massagers, glow sticks, large wall mirror, shaggy rug, rain stick, paint for the walls, light projector, etc....we plan to use the room before leaving the house to lower his anxiety. Use it when he starts to stem and needs a safe place to go. We are asking for help in creating this because we believe it will be very beneficial for his development. Even the smallest donation will help us accomplish this dream, If you have any of these items laying around and want to donate those that would be appreciated as well.
