Mother uses tights to calm a sensory seeker

Shared by Rachel on 2014-08-14 16:07

About the solution

"All you need is nylons or tights. Once you have one of these, pick up the toddler and hold him tightly. Don't yell or act angry, your yelling will make his brain freak out even more. When he's still enough for you to begin, hold one foot of the tights by his right armpit and over his left shoulder. Pull rather tightly, but not tight enough to bruise. When the tights are back to his right armpit, simply wrap them over the loose foot end to secure it. Once you've reached that point, the rest of this should be pretty easy. The boy wears something like a vest for ten to 20 minutes.

With a simple trick you can make a sensory seeker feel secure and able to concentrate!", she explained.
