the snuggie blanket with arm holes ds loves to snuggle with it while hes watching tv or playing ps3 its a big comfort to him and ASDA's 10ft trampoline with encloseure for £99 wears DS out ready for bed yay
moon in my room and ceiling stars rainbow in my room (both help ds1 relax before bed) the old Mothercare toilet lock- the only one that has lasted B and Q door alarm (Incase Ds does a runner) will ditto trampoline ds loves his Guitar we got for his birthday (not SN but he loves it)
bilibo- rarely gets played with by DS1 DS2 however loves it plastic cupboard locks they just break very easily.
Hit; trampoline, back pack with 'lead' (IFSWIM), ear defenders, (+++ hit), big sand timers (5 , 10 and 15 mins). and oddly enough a potty... (stays in the car and if we are having a 'no public toilet day' it can be used at road side), ds loves the idea of a wee while watching traffic,
Stabilo pencils (left handed for ds and now they do them with a finer lead for older children)
wobble cushion - his teacher thought it wasn't making any difference until it went missing over the holidays, then she rushed out and bought him a replacement out of her own pocket!
Little-life daysack - third child now using the original one we bought for ds 8 years ago and its still in as good as new condition.
We have both the Baby Jogger City Mini and the Baby Jogger City Classic for dd (nt). They are ridiculously easy to steer and fold and the suncanopies/hoods are the best on the market for preventing sun-glare and overstimulation. Dd can sleep in hers in the most busy/noisy places possible - can't recommend them highly enough.
Caring cutlery - only had it for about a month, but it has made a huge difference to our mealtimes with ds1 and I am no longer having to scrape the table on his side after every meal, because he can cut his food without sending the contents of his food flying across the table.
Theraputty - brilliant for fine motor and also as a fiddle toy - win/win.
Hippychick Mattress Protectors - lovely and soft quick to wash and tumble.
Moon in my room was a miss for us - ds1 got distressed because it only stays on for half an hour max and ds2 (who shares a room with ds1) couldn't sleep because it was too bright.
sport you can get physio balls from physio if you have one for dc otherwise tesco's,argos.Peanut balls are good as well. My dd loves her glow bear and glow dog when she goes to bed. She hated her bed knee blocks and sleep system
hit: a tunnel made from 2 bits of lycra (home made) - he could spend hours in it especially when you flap it vibrating massager, i think from argos genie head massager from amazon - ds is very sensory seeking beach ball - took me ages to realise these were easier for him to try to 'catch/throw' than other balls a duvet cover full of those balls you get for ball pools (home made) - he gets inside the duvet cover with the balls ELC pop up tent and tunnel jolly phonics cd and images big chalks for drawing on the ground outside
miss: can't think of any right now but i'm sure i've wasted ££s on SN products, especially books - will try to post later if i get all my jobs done!
Apart from making me lust after a new Baby Jogger this thread is brilliant!
What's with the gym balls? DS has suddenly become a bit boisterous and it's supposedly sensory. We're not a rough-and-tumble sort of family. He isn't bothered about the trampoline so would gym balls address this? He does have a huge beach ball he likes to play with.
Pre-school has recommended gladiator-type toys but I can't find them and not really keen on the idea in any case.
