To finish a week of Sensory Processing articles, here is a review of a practical app called Sensory Treat. This app is designed to incorporate your sensory diet activities into your daily lives.
Sensory Treat by Sensory Treat Ltd.
(trial period and then fee via subscription $9.99 for 3 months).
This is an amazing app that was designed by parents of children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Hadas and Oren Steinberg were given a sensory therapy home program for their son to incorporate into their lives as a family. This included a sensory diet of activities with 2 to 3 hour intervals between activities. (Read more about sensory diets here). When their daughter was diagnosed with SPD, they looked for an alternative way to manage the sensory diet and OT paperwork. This is when they developed the Sensory Treat app.
The Sensory Treat app is packed with useful things to help you, your child and your therapist to manage a sensory diet. Some of the features that you will find useful are:
I can envisage OTs and parents collaboratively looking at this app to set up activities for their child's sensory diet. What a great organisational tool!
I took so many screen shots of this app that I had trouble choosing the best ones to include as they were all great. For more information see the video below (if you are reading this in an email, click on the title of this post which will take you to a live webpage) or make sure you look at the Sensory Treat website which is full of useful information.
I have not seen another app or program like Sensory Treat and would highly recommend downloading it if you are a therapist or parent with a child with Sensory Processing Disorder. Have you tried Sensory Treat? If you have, I would love to hear about your experience using this app!
