Autism describes a spectrum of disorders with severe symptoms and features. These characteristics determine a person's ability to socialize, communicate in a close and near environment. Autism can show when the exposure to sound, touch, taste, smell, and light gives too much or too little sensitivity. In most cases, the symptoms characteristic of autism occur in children between the ages of 12 and 36 months. Communicating with others for people with autism spectrum disorders can be a challenge, and being in the sensory environment around them can become unbearable. This can exacerbate stereotypical and behavioral problems. By changing the sensory needs and focusing on the abilities, the amount of these abnormal behavior problems can be reduced. Such a change can also help with the processing of sensations and information, resulting in fewer problems in adulthood.
One of the tools that can help process the senses is the sensory environment. The sensory environment provides a spectrum of sensory stimulation that can be tailored to the needs of the autistic person to control sensory processing and help prepare for engaging in meaningful activities. We have selected the most popular tools for you, which were loved by many children with autism spectrum and their parents.
