Autism Jersey have a new lending library of sensory aids, thanks to some fundraising by our friends at CPA Global and from money raised at St Martin’s Bonfire Night.
Sensory support is essential for children and adults with a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder as they can find it difficult processing sensory information. This can have an impact on their behaviour and affect their everyday life.
You can borrow items to see if they are beneficial before buying what can sometimes be quite a pricy purchase.
You need to be a member of Autism Jersey to borrow from our library – but it’s free to join.
For some weighted items, you will need to have liaised with the Occupational Therapy department.
Giant Dark Den
Weighted blankets (5 lb and 4 lb)
Large weighted vest
Seating discs and wedges
Tactile massage rings and rolls
Large colour changing light
Weighted lap pads
Sand timers (10, 5 and 2 minutes)
Items will be on loan for a month at a time.
More items will be added – do check back with us again.
If you would like to borrow an item, please email Jaclyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
