The Well-Balanced OT


Sensory Bins. You either love them or hate them.

They can work beautifully one day, and the next they are spilled across your living room floor.

In this resource, Sensory Bins 101, I share my tips for using them effectively..and believe me, I've used them a lot in my 8 years of being an Occupational Therapist.

This resource will give you thousands of combinations with all my suggestions for bin fillers, manipulatives, tools, and activities. In my opinion, the secret to a successful sensory bin is all in the activity. There needs to be a purpose to help promote regulation, otherwise, the bin gets dumped.
