Christina is the founder od Sensory Theraplay Box, she is an occupational therapist living in New York with her husband and two daughters (…and dog, cat & chickens!). Her experience is working with children who have developmental delays, autism spectrum disorders, neurological impairments and emotional disturbances.
Her inspiration for starting this company was seeing a huge need for it in the field. Frequently being asked by the parents of clients: “what toys and activities should I do with my child at home?” Parents ask, “where can I buy that?” or “what toys are appropriate for my son?” she found herself frequently writing out lists of items that would be helpful to purchase for use at home.
In addition, being a part of a monthly subscription box, she thought about how fun it wold be for children to receive a fun box with special need items.
The items selected are either:
1. Favorites in the “therapy world” that therapists use
2. “Tried and true” goodies that have had positive feedback from parents over the years
3. Everyday toys that you would see in a toy-store that aren’t necessarily marketed towards special needs children, but that have developmental and sensory benefits.
4. And most importantly…the KIDS’ favorite toys! There are always those items that kids gravitate to or just love to play with.
Those are the types of things included in Sensory TheraPLAY Box!
Also, throughout her career, she has gathered a few tips and tricks along the way and started the Sensory TheraPLAY Box Blog to share some insights and helpful information, here you will find occupational therapy tips and techniques for parents and those who care for children with special needs.
