Focusing on aspects of nature: insect, flora, fauna, seasons, colors, etc…, helps get your child out of the house and in the backyard and parks.
Bring a buddy along.
Wear sunscreen, hat, long sleeves, gloves and other sensory-regulating clothing.
With occupational therapy and self-regulation training, kids can enjoy nature. Our 7 year old son rediscovered nature after a 2 year sensory defensive hiatus. For the past 3 years, he has enjoyed nature, especially bugs/insects and flora. Life on the Autism Spectrum (with proper management of Sensory Processing Disorder) can be enjoyable!

Nature is great for sensory kids

Even just a 5-minute walk outside or a short visit to a lake can lower the level of your stress hormones. Be sure to get outside with your sensory child! Being in nature can be a HUGE part of a sensory diet.
