<This post contains affiliate links>

Parents often ask me for my favorite Sensory Resources.  I recently did a parent workshop to speak about OT tips and trick for children with Sensory Processing Difficulties.    I decided to put together a simple list of my go-to books, toys, and equipment for Sensory Processing.  So here it is!
