This checklist is designed to help children to identify the affect sensory activities have on them. Your child may require assistance from a parent, teacher or an occupational therapist to complete the tool.
Help your child to draw an up arrow next to activities which make them more alert (or excited). Help your child to draw a down arrow next to activities which may help them to feel calm (or more relaxed).
Activities are listed in categories - strong activities (proprioceptive), moving activities (vestibular), mouth activities (oral), looking activities (vision), listening activities (auditory) and smelling activities (olfactory).
Not all activities listed may be relevant to your child. There is a space to add activities of your own. For further information please refer to https://www.yourkidsot.com/blog/new-tool-help-me-identify-my-sensory-activities-checklist-for-kids
