What are Sensory Disorders?

Sensory disorders refer to a variety of conditions that affect the way an individual processes and responds to sensory stimuli. These stimuli can include touch, sound, sight, taste, and smell. Sensory disorders are often associated with developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, they can also occur in individuals without any other diagnosed condition.

How was DrSensory founded?

Dr. Sensory was founded by two passionate doctors, Dr. Eva PT and Dr. Yana DDS. With their combined expertise in physical therapy and dentistry, they noticed a gap for comprehensive care solutions for children with sensory disorders.

Can sensory toys be beneficial for adults?

Sensory toys are incredibly useful for people of all ages! As humans, we are constantly looking for ways to explore our world with the senses we have. Finding ways to incorporate activities and objects that help us optimize the sensory input we have can not only help us focus on tasks at hand but can help manage all of the overwhelming sensory input we already have. Each individual is unique and finding the right sensory activity/object can be very useful.

Where can I find reputable sources for purchasing sensory toys?

Having done research into what is currently available through different sources, we have found a gap in reliable resources for parents and teachers. That is why we have created DrSensory. We hope that you can find our website and products reputable when searching for and purchasing sensory items.

Are there portable sensory toys for on-the-go use?

Most definitely! We have created a category specific for "travel" and times when you are on-the-go. We are not always in the comfort of our own homes and classrooms when we need sensory feedback - travel sensory items work perfectly for times such as this! We hope you find what you are looking for here at DrSensory.

Do sensory toys require supervision during use?

Some do! This is a great question! This is why we highly encourage you as the parent/guardian or teacher to determine which sensory toy/object works well for the individual you are purchasing for. Each person is unique in their sensory-seeking specifications and age is something that must be considered! Purchase items that are not only specific to the individual but that are also age-appropriate. Supervision is key for safety until the individual using the sensory toy has shown safety and competence with use.
