Sensory Support Kits

Developed by Autism Canada, these sensory kits contain an assortment of items which are designed to reduce stress and anxiety, stimulate learning, and provide comfort in unfamiliar environments.

Tactile and sensory items can be comforting to an autistic individual. They support their efforts to self-regulate and remain calm in an emotional or stressful situation. Offering sensory supports to those on the Autism Spectrum when they are experiencing stress can help them avoid a sensory meltdown or a shutdown.
